In a major breakthrough in the Sheena Bora murder case, it has now been confirmed that the remains of the body found in Raigad forest outside Mumbai were those of the 24-year-old, who was allegedly strangled to death in 2012.

A forensic team from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences had conducted the forensic test and the report has been shared with the Central Bureau of Investigation, which is likely to file its chargesheet against the three accused -- Indrani Mukerjea, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and former driver Shyamvar Rai -- in the next few days.

Three tests were conducted by the AIIMS forensic department to prove that the charred remains were of Sheena. 

Indrani, along with Khanna and Rai, has been accused of murdering Sheena, 24, her daughter from previous relationship, and disposing of her body at a Raigad forest in April 2012, about 84 kilometre from Mumbai.

According to police, Sheena was allegedly strangled in a car, then her body was burnt before being dumped in the forest in neighbouring Raigad district. The Maharashtra government had transferred the case to CBI in September, saying it as an attempt to clear all doubts over the probe and the officers involved as the then Mumbai police commissioner Rakesh Maria had personally led the probe.
