In one of mysterious 2012 murder case of Sheena Bora, the Central Bureau of Investigation on Friday claimed that INX Media co-founder Peter Mukerjea is the ‘silent killer’ of the daughter of his wife Indrani Mukerjea from her past marriage. The CBI has also opposed his bail plea in the 2012 murder case.
On April 24, 2012, Sheena Bora was allegedly strangled to death in a car, after which her body was burnt and dumped in a forest in Raigad, Maharashtra. After which accused Indrani Mukerjea, mother of Sheena Bora was arrested after the case came to light in 2015 and has been in jail since.
Peter Mukerjea, was also arrested in the sensational murder case of wife’s daughter in 2015. He had applied for bail in November last year before special CBI Judge J C Jagdale, PTI reported. This is the third time he has approached the court for bail.
On Friday, CBI special prosecutor Bharat Badami opposed Mukerjea’s bail plea and said the agency has enough evidence to prove Peter Mukerjea’s role in the conspiracy to kill Bora. “Peter knew everything...he was not a statue of the family,” Badami said. “He took no step when Rahul [Peter Mukerjea’s son and Bora’s fiancee] was desperately asking about Sheena...Peter is the silent killer of Sheena Bora.”
CBI argued that if Mukerjea is released on bail, he may try to influence Rahul Mukerjea (witness), who is yet to depose before the court.
