Sheena Bora Case | “Indrani’s Conduct highly Condemnable”: Peter
Indrani Mukerjea told a CBI court that Peter Mukerjea might have caused her daughter’s disappearance.
In a startling twist to the Sheena Bora murder case, her mother and key accused Indrani Mukerjea told a CBI court on Wednesday, 15 November, in Mumbai that her husband Peter Mukerjea might have caused her daughter's disappearance out of “greed and ill-will”.
- In an explosive letter, Indrani said Peter Mukerjea and their former driver could be behind Sheena Bora’s abduction
- She told the CBI court that Peter may have manipulated circumstances to frame her in the murder case
- She also sought the call data record of Peter, saying it would help ascertain whether he was involved in Sheena’s disappearance
Peter Mukerjea reponds to Indrani's allegations
Peter Mukerjea responding to Indirani’s allegations against him said that her “conduct was highly condemnable, contemptuous” and that it was clearly an attempt to interfere with the administration.
The CBI will submit Peter’s CD-R to the court on 5 December. Indrani had earlier asked for his CD-R in her application.
Court Asks Peter, CBI to File Replies on Indrani's Application
A special court on Friday asked the CBI and Peter Mukerjea to file their replies on the application filed by Indrani Mukerjea in which she said her husband might have caused her daughter Sheena Bora's disappearance.
Special CBI judge Jayendra C Jagdale, who is recording the statement of Indrani Mukerjea's former driver Shyamwar Rai (accused turned approver), later adjourned the case till next week.
'Peter May Have Abducted my Daughter'
In a startling twist to the Sheena Bora murder case, her mother and key accused Indrani Mukerjea told a CBI court that her husband Peter Mukerjea might have caused her daughter’s disappearance.
Though she did not expressly accuse Peter, a former media baron, of killing Sheena, Indrani said he and their former driver Shyamvar Rai could be behind her abduction, making her untraceable and destroying evidence.
Indrani said she believes that Peter and others may have manipulated the circumstances to frame her and influence witnesses, situations and information that led to her arrest "for the heinous crime that they may have committed, aided and abetted".
"I have strong reasons to believe that Peter Mukerjea, with the assistance of other persons, including (accused-turned-approver) Shyamwar Rai, may have conspired and abducted my daughter Sheena in 2012 and made her untraceable and subsequently destroyed evidence," she said in an application, in which she sought the call data record (CDR) of Peter.
Indrani Seeks Call Data Record of Peter
I am convinced that if we are able to obtain the CDR of Peter, we will be in a better position to ascertain if Peter and other persons were involved in the disappearance of my daughter Sheena and there will be more clarity if Peter and other persons have a role in framing me.Indrani Mukerjea
She sought the CDR for the period between January 2012 and December 2012, and from January 2015 to December 2015.
I offer my sincere gratitude to Your Honour for your kindness and endeavor to provide justice to my daughter, Sheena, who may have lost her life on account of greed, betrayal, jealousy, lust and ill-will of persons whom she dearly loved and trusted.Indrani Mukerjea
Peter’s lawyer Shrikant Shivade said that he would not comment on Indrani's application and will file an appropriate reply in court.
The court is recording the statement of approver Rai.
