Peter Mukerjea has been sent to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) custody, till 30 November. The former media baron, who was taken to New Delhi for two days of questioning by senior CBI officers in the Sheena Bora murder case, was brought to Mumbai, on the morning of 26 November, as his CBI custody ends today.
He was produced in a magistrate court later, where the CBI is likely to seek his custody to further question him in connection with the sensational murder case. Peter, husband of Indrani Mukerjea, was arrested on November 19, and granted CBI custody till today, by a special court in Mumbai.
Sheena, 24, was Indrani’s daughter from an earlier marriage, and she was allegedly killed by her mother, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna, and her former driver Shyamvar Rai, in April 2012.
Earlier, Peter was found avoiding giving truthful replies during his interrogation by CBI team, in New Delhi. The CBI grilled him for several hours after he was shifted from Mumbai, in connection with the case.
The CBI has claimed financial transaction as the motive behind Sheena’s murder, and that Peter during his interrogation disclosed investments of crores of rupees made by him, and Indrani.
The investigating agency has claimed that, it has come across some important information, and documents, that are crucial for the purpose of investigation with regard to the case.
