Watch the trailer of Mafia below:
- Jack The Ripper
In 1888, a series of murders by a ruthless killer who came to be known as ‘Jack the Ripper’ wracked the Whitechapel District of London. All the targets were prostitute women who lived or worked in the slums of the East End area. No suspects were identified, and within three months, there had been a slew of victims that were butchered by Jack the Ripper. This chilling case remains unsolved to this day.
2. The Zodiac Killer
Between 1968 and 1969, five dramatic murders were committed in California by an entity who even taunted the police with cryptic puzzles as clues in letters addressed to them! In one letter to the police, this person expressed his love for killing as a game that was more entertaining than hunting animals. What’s more, this clearly deranged party left a coded message which they claimed concealed their motive and identity. Unfortunately, no one was able to crack the mystery.
3. Sheena Bora’s Murder
Sheena Bora was a 24-year-old working woman based in Mumbai. In April 2012, she was reported as missing. Her body was discovered after a tip-off one month later. She had been strangled, stuffed in a bag and set ablaze in a village in Raigad. This particular case has lots of peculiar twists and turns. Indrani Mukerjea, a media executive, was arrested for the murder along with her former husbands Sanjeev Khanna and Peter Mukerjea, and her chauffeur Shyamvar Pinturam Rai. However, no hard evidence has been established as of yet, and the tale of this case remains as queer and bone-chilling as ever. Indrani Mukerjea is Sheena Bora’s biological mother, although she had previously claimed the victim to be her sister! Indrani Mukerjea also said that she was under the impression that Sheena had gone to the US for further studies, and this was why no FIR had been made. Sheena was also dating her step-brother Rahul Mukerjea, who was apparently stalking her, according to Indrani. Later, it was also revealed that Sheena had been pregnant at the time of her death.
4. The Murder Of Jessica Lal
In 1999, Jessica Lal, an aspiring model, was shot dead at a bar in Delhi. No one came forward to help out the police with information, and all those who had witnessed this horrific crime seemed not to remember anything about it! Much later, it was discovered that Manu Sharma, a business magnate, shot Jessica point blank because she refused to serve him alcohol while working as a celebrity barmaid at the party.
