The Central Bureau of Investigation has arrested media tycoon Peter Mukerjea in connection with the murder of Sheena Bora, the daughter of his wife Indrani Mukerjea who is the prime accused and has been esconced in a Mumbai jail since September 7.
The CBI believes Indrani’s accomplices in the crime were her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyam Rai. Sheena Bora who was murdered in 2012 was Indrani’s daughter but was introduced as her sister. She was also engaged to Rahul, son of Mukerjea from an earlier marriage. Indrani disapproved of the relationship. For the past three years Indrani told friends Sheena Bora had gone to the US, but earlier this year her body was found in a forest near Mumbai.
The whole complicated case was transferred to the CBI after allegations the new police chief Ahmed Javed was ‘close’ to Peter Mukerjea.
