Sheena murder: CBI supplementary chargesheet against Peter Mukerjea

Mumbai, Feb 16 (IANS) The CBI on Tuesday filed a supplementary chargesheet against former media tycoon Peter Mukerjea in the sensational Sheena Bora murder case, an official said here.

The chargesheet was filed before an additional chief metropolitan magistrate, Esplanade Court after investigation unearthed more evidence against Peter Mukerjea.

Peter Mukerjea was arrested on November 19, 2015, nearly three months after the arrest of his wife Indrani Mukerjea, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and her former driver Shyamvar Rai, who were arrested in August.

Among other things, the Central Bureau of Investigation has charged Peter Mukerjea with conspiracy in the kidnapping and killing of Sheena on April 24, 2012, and later burning and disposing of her body in the forests of adjoining Raigad district, around 90 km south of Mumbai.

During the investigation, a Medical Board minutely examined Sheena’s skeleton and conducted superimposition of her skull to establish her identity from the remains found in the forests last year.

On September 28 last year, the CBI had taken over the case following a request from the Maharashtra government as it could have nationwide and even international ramifications pertaining to mega-financial transactions.

Since their arrest on August 25 last year from Mumbai and Kolkata, Indrani, Khanna and Rai have remained in police or judicial custody even as the CBI continues its probe.
