Sheena Bora Murder Case: Peter Mukerjea Alleges Indrani Mukherjee Trying to ‘Derail Probe’ by Accusing His Involvement
Mumbai, Nov 23: Peter Mukerjea on Thursday termed the allegations made by his wife Indrani Mukerjea regarding his involvement in the murder of Sheena Bora as false and defamatory before the Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court. Earlier last week, Indrani, who is the prime accused in the sensational case, made a scathing attack at Peter saying he might have abducted her daughter “out of greed and ill-will”.
Indrani told the CBI that Peter and their former driver Shyamwar Rai could be behind the abduction of Sheena, making her untraceable and destroying evidences. Following these allegations, Peter, in a written reply to the special court in Mumbai, said “Indrani was plotting a sinister conspiracy to drag his name into the murder case.”
He further said that these allegations were made by Indrani ‘to play the victim card but he will not get involved in this mud-slinging game. He added he will rather try to put his defence before the court as per procedure.
Indrani is the prime accused in her daughter Sheena Bora’s murder case, who was killed on April 24, 2012 and is lodged in Mumbai’s Byculla jail. In August 2015, she along with her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and ex-driver Rai were nabbed. Peter Mukerjea was arrested in November the same year.
