Peter Mukerjea likely to be produced in court today

Coming to the defence of former media baron Peter Mukerjea, an accused in the Sheena Bora murder case, for the second time, his son Rahul Mukerjea, said on Saturday that the charges against his father were "outrageous". He was arrested, on November 19.

In the letter, Rahul warned Indrani to reveal the truth saying she has impersonated Sheena in the past.

In a major development today, a senior Mumbai Police officer claimed that in 2012 Peter and Indrani had approached him seeking help to trace the call location of Sheena.

Mukerjea was produced before the court where the prosecution sought 10 days' custody of Mukerjea, claiming he was not cooperating in the investigations into his step-daughter's murder and the CBI had come across certain documents of which he (Mukerjea) had exclusive knowledge.

This appeared to have irked Indrani, who then hatched a plan to kill Sheena along with (her former husband) Sanjeev Khanna. The duo had taken the permission from Rahul's mother and Sheena's grandparents.

CBI's counsel additional solicitor general Anil Singh told the court that it wanted to interrogate Peter over financial transactions and the recovery of Sheena's purse and its contents.

CBI sources said Peter tried to get Sheena's CDR details through one Mumbai Police officer who was known to him.

The report also says that while the CBI told the court that they have managed to get more information from Peter, Sheena's mobile phone, ATM card and purse have not been recovered. One day she came up to me and said, 'I am Indrani's daughter, not her sister.' When Indrani came to know about our relationship, she was furious and fought with my father. His wife Indrani, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and her driver Shyamvar Rai were arrested by the CBI earlier.

According to investigators, Sheena Bora, 24, an employee with a private company in Mumbai, was allegedly strangulated in a auto on the night of April 24, 2012. "Peter played an active and crucial role in the case", stated the 1000-page CBI chargesheet.

CBI had on Saturday grilled Peter for around 11 hours and his interrogation started again on Sunday morning, the sources said without elaborating.

An email sent by Indrani to Rahul (date could not be ascertained) asks him to let bygones be bygones.
