Rai last week forwarded a one-page letter to the court stating his intention to reveal the details of the criminal conspiracy and execution of Sheena’s murder.

Judge HS Mahajan on Wednesday accepted his plea.

When the court asked Rai how he knew about the murder, Rai said that he was present at the time of the incident, and was among the participants in the murder.

“I am aware about the facts connected to the commission of offence of killing of Sheena Bora by strangulation,” Rai told the court.

He further said that he is ready to tell the truth to the court as he has regrets what happened and he is under no pressure.

The court has now given one week’s time to the prosecution to reply to Rai’s plea.

Earlier last month, Rai alleged that he was threatened in Arthur Road jail, and hence was shifted to Thane jail. The court had slammed the jail authorities for not producing him before the court, and ordered the jail authorities to bring him to court on Wednesday.

Rai is the crucial link in the case which led to the arrest of Indrani Mukerjea, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna for Sheena’s murder. Khar police on the basis of a tip off had arrested Rai on August 21 from Carter Road area of Mumbai with the weapon and three “live cartridges” with him.
