Sheena Bora murder: 'Ambitious' Indrani Mukerjea was willing to sacrifice her children, says Peter Mukerjea
Peter Mukerjea is his second bail plea has contending that the chargesheet doesn't have "reasonable grounds" to hold him guilty in Sheena Bora murder case.
Mumbai: Former media tycoon Peter Mukerjea in his fresh bail application has accused his wife Indrani Mukerjea of being highly ambitious and willing to sacrifice and give up her children to achieve her ambitions.
Peter, who has also been arrested for his alleged role in Sheena Bora murder case, said Indrani was very calculative and even resorted to subterfuge in months of March and April in 2012, while tricking Sheena into believing that she (Indrani) was willing to forget past acrimony and anger and turn into a friend and a well-wisher of Sheena, according to news agency ANI
24-year-old Sheena, daughter of Indrani from an earlier relationship, was allegedly strangled in a car and her body burnt and dumped in a forest in Raigad, about 84 kms from here in April 2012.
Peter was arrested on November 19, 2015. He has been kept at the high-security Arthur Road Jail here where Sanjeev Khanna and Shyamvar Rai are also lodged.
Peter was arrested 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.
The ex-media baron in his second bail plea has contended that the CBI chargesheet doesn't have "reasonable grounds" to hold him guilty.
There was no further justification for keeping him in custody as there were no "reasonable grounds" in the chargesheet to believe that "he has been guilty of offences with which he is charged", the plea said.
As per the chargesheet, Mukerjea's motive for committing the crime (participating in the conspiracy to murder Sheena) was that he was against the relationship between Ms Bora and his son Rahul Mukerjea.
