New developments in the Sheena Bora murder case has reportedly revealed that after she was murdered, her body was driven to Raigad in a 'sitting' position to avoid suspicion from cops at check-posts. 

The police have said that Indrani Mukherjea and her second husband Sanjeev Khanna seated Sheena's corpse between them in the rear seat of the car, states a report in The Times of India.

This was done because the duo felt that in case they were stopped by the police for checking, they'd most likley check the vehicle's boot, and if they did enquire about the passengers, they could tell the cops that Sheena was sleeping as it was morning. 

According to the report, "Sheena's body was `seated' in the car when the perpetrators took it from Bandra's Linking Road, where they strangled Sheena, to the garage of Indrani's Worli residence on the night on April 24, 2012.They left for Raigad early next morning."

Since the body starts to stiffen after death and would be difficult to fold, the accused allegedly put her body in a suitcase haphazardly without locking it and burnt it. 

Deven Bharti, joint commissioner of police (law and order), told the newspaper that Indrani and Khanna also had plans to kill Michail, who had also been drugged at her Worli home but managed to escape.
