Sheena murder: Peter Mukerjea’s CBI custody extended by a day

Mumbai, Nov 30 (IANS) A special court here on Monday extended the CBI custody by a day — till Tuesday — of former media tycoon Peter Mukerjea, one of the four prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case.

The Central Bureau of Investigation sought four days custody of Mukerjea for investigation pertaining to certain financial transactions and other issues connected with the case.

The CBI said it also wanted to ascertain whether Mukerjea gave any wrong replies during the polygraph test he underwent in New Delhi on November 28.

Strongly opposing further remand, the defence lawyer claimed that Mukerjea had nothing to hide and and he had willingly undergone the polygraph test.

Mukerjea was arrested on November 19 from his home in Mumbai’s Worli area and has been in CBI custody since then.

Among other things, the CBI contends that Mukerjea was aware of the killing of Sheena, the daughter of his wife Indrani Mukerjea.

In August, Mumbai police arrested Indrani, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and her former driver Shyamwar Rai in connection with Sheena’s murder.

The trio of Indrani, Khanna and Rai is in CBI custody till December 3.
