GUWAHATI, Oct 19 - A six-member team of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) today questioned Mikhail Bora, the son of Indrani Mukherjea at his Sundarpur residence in connection with the high-profile Sheena Bora murder case.
After taking over the investigation from Mumbai Police, this is for the first time that the investigation agency has questioned Mikhail.
Sources informed that the investigators quizzed both Mikhail and UK Bora, the father of Indrani Mukherjea over a range of issues related to Indrani and Sheena and their relationship.
The CBI team, it has been informed, comprised of officials both from New Delhi and Mumbai.
Both Mikhail and UK Bora were questioned for more than four hours after the CBI team reached their residence early this morning.
The CBI today conducted searches in as many as ten places, including Guwahati, Mumbai, Kolkata, Goa and Madhya Pradesh.
It was still not clear whether Mikhail will be summoned to Mumbai for further questioning by the CBI.
�Mikhail is an important link in the entire episode, and he in all probability would be sought by the investigation agency as the probe gains momentum,� sources added.
PTI reports adds: Meanwhile, CBI teams swooped down on the residences of former media barons Indrani Mukherjea and Peter Mukherjea in Mumbai and Goa, besides two residences of Sanjeev Khanna in Kolkata. The sleuths also searched Indrani�s driver Shyamvar Rai�s houses in Mumbai and Chhindwara, Madhya Pradesh.
The sources said the agency is looking for some specific corroborative material, which cannot be revealed at this stage, on the basis of inputs received during the questioning of Indrani, Sanjeev, Peter and Rai.
They said the agency is now looking at the possible motives behind the killing of Sheena, Indrani�s daughter.
The agency, which recently took over the investigation from Mumbai police, has filed a case under various sections of the Indian Penal Code including those related to criminal conspiracy, murder, abduction, destruction of evidence, causing hurt by giving poison and under the Arms Act.
The decision to hand over the probe to CBI came after days of uncertainty on the supervisory role of former Mumbai Police chief Rakesh Maria, who was shunted out in the midst of the inquiry that he had proactively helmed.
