Mumbai: A magistrate court on Monday extended the judicial custody of former media baron Pater Mukerjea till February 8 in Shenna Bora murder case.
Peter Mukerjea, husband of prime accused Indrani Mukerjea was taken into custody on November 19 after police suspected him of hiding crucial information in the case.
Peter has also been suspected of being part of criminal conspiracy and misleading his son Rahul Mukerjea by telling him that Sheena has shifted to United States. Rahul and Sheena were engaged and were in a live-in relationship.
Peter is currently kept at the high-security Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai, where other two accused in the case are also lodged.
Sheena Bora, daughter of Indrani Mukerjea from her previous relationship, was murdered in April 2012 and her body was recovered few days later from a forest in Raigad district.
