Mumbai police officials said it is a major boost to their investigation as it was they who investigated and found she was framed in the alleged drug case by baker Paul Anthony.
Joint commissioner of police (crime) Lakhimpur Gautam confirmed her arrival and said the crime branch team along with Chrisann will be meeting the Mumbai police commissioner today at 11.30am.
Last month, the Sharjah officials had informed the Pereira family that her passport was sent to a committee that was to take a call on her return to India. The committee was taking a review on the removal of her name from the travel blacklist.
The Sharjah court had in April given her a clean chit on the request of the Indian government through diplomatic channel that she was framed in the case. The city crime branch arrested broker Paul Anthony and his accomplice Rajesh Bhobhate alias Ravi and drug peddler Shantisingh Rajput for allegedly orchestrating a fake audition for a web series in Sharjah, sending and planting drugs on Chrisann on April 1.
During the course of investigations, it transpired that the accused similarly planted drugs on four other victims namely Clayton Rodrigues, Monisha D mello, Rishikesh Pandya and Ken Rodrigues over grudges.
