Rai said that Indrani told him about her plans to murder her two children via a Skype call and asked for his help. He further added that Indrani wanted to kill both of them as they were maligning her image in the society.

Sheena also threatened to expose the truth that Indrani was their mother and not their sister as the latter had claimed, according to the report.

CNN-News 18 quoted Rai: "She (Indrani) then asked me to open the garage and the bag carrying Sheena's body. Khanna and I took the bag out and kept it in the back. Madam then asked me to switch off my mobile phone. We then left on the Pen road. She asked me stop at a petrol pump on the road. I stopped the car and got petrol in a can."

Rai was quoted by ANI as: “I was alone in office at that time, Indrani madam told me on Skype I am a very trustworthy person and she wanted to tell me something which I cannot tell anyone. She told me that she will take responsibility of my child’s education and all medical expenses of my family. She assured that my job as a driver will stay forever."

The report further mentioned that Indrani told Rai not to worry and that a man from Kolkata would come from to kill Sheena and Mikhail.

Rai helped Indrani get rid of the body in a forest in Raigad: "I along with Indrani and her husband Sanjeev Khanna, left to dispose of Sheena’s body and burnt it in a forest in Gagode village of Raigad district on 24 April, 2012.”

In January, a special CBI court in Delhi had framed charges against Indrani, Peter Mukerjea, and Khanna for the murder of Sheena Bora, as stated in a previous Firstpost article. According to the article, the three have been deemed guilty of the murder and criminal conspiracy, following which the case was put on trial.
