Arrested in the Sheena Bora murder case, Media tycoon and Indrani's husband Peter Mukerjea was further grilled by CBI officials till 1 AM yesterday. The CBI suspected that he knew about the whereabouts of Sheena Bora.
Peter Mukerjea claimed that he had no knowledge of Indrani-Sheena relationship and maintains that he did know anything about the plot. Peter though asserted he was conned by his wife Indrani.
Peter's Lawyer Mahesh Jethmalani said, "My relationship with Peter Mukerjea ended with the filling of the chargesheet against him; so I am not anybody's lawyer right now; neither Peter nor Indrani's. I have nothing to say and I have no role in the future into this matter. Not even as advisory, secretly or remotely".
Abha Singh said, “Peter Mukerjea was the motive why Sheen Bora was murdered. He was an accomplice from what the facts came out. One could easily make out that Peter was in the know-how, as he was the one who had booked the taxi and Rahul had the passport; so all these facts were leading to the police".
She also felt that Mumbai police was trying to shield Peter Mukerjea. It is a slap on the face of Mumbai police, because the CBI in a short one month has arrested Peter Mukerjea and has done a good job.
Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit, said, "On the arrest of Peter Mukerjea, the entire credit should go to the efficient investigation done by Rakesh Maria and his team. He did not feel that it was right to even doubt the integrity of Rakesh Maria, because he took the entire investigation and did not allow the case to go into the wrong hands to avoid confusion."
Former CBI Director Joginder Singh, said, "Flip flop by Peter itself shows that there is something which Peter is concealing; there is nothing wrong in concealing but you cannot force a person to say what you want him to say, and you cannot chargesheet a person on flip-flopping . They must have got something more".
