Peter, Indrani Mukerjea Granted Divorce by Mumbai Court

A family court on Thursday, 3 October, granted divorce to former media baron Peter Mukerjea and his estranged wife Indrani, both facing trial in the Sheena Bora murder case.

The couple had moved the family court in suburban Bandra in September last year, seeking divorce by mutual consent.

Their divorce settlement included division of assets, including the couple’s properties in Spain and London, bank deposits and other investments.

Indrani, also a former media executive, had served Peter a notice for divorce on the grounds that their marriage had "irretrievably broken down" and there was no chance of a reconciliation.

Indrani (47) and Peter (65) had got married in 2002.

Both are facing trial in the Sheena Bora murder case and are in jail under judicial custody since their arrest in 2015.

Indrani is lodged in Byculla women's prison, while Peter has been kept at the nearby Arthur Road jail in central Mumbai.

Sheena, 24, Indrani's daughter from an earlier relationship, was killed in April 2012 and her body dumped in the adjoining Raigad district.

The murder came to light in August 2015 after the Mukerjeas' former driver Shyamvar Rai spilled the beans when he was arrested in another case.

Indrani is facing a murder charge, while Peter has been accused of being part of the conspiracy to kill Sheena.
