Police today brought former Star India CEO Peter Mukerjea face to face with his wife Indrani and the two other accused in the sensational Sheena Bora murder case and questioned them extensively.
Mukerjea reached the Khar police station here this morning for recording of his statement. Indrani, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyam Rai, who were allegedly involved in the murder, were also brought there a little later.
A police team also went to Peter Mukerjea’s residence in Worli area even as a team in Kolkata is said to have seized Khanna’s laptop that would help in the probe.
The police are understood to have questioned the three accused in the presence of Peter and their counsel in perhaps the first such confrontation since Indrani was arrested on August 24 for allegedly murdering Sheena.
Indrani Mukerjea is accused of killing Sheena, her daughter from an earlier relationship, in 2012 over a financial dispute, with the help of her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyam Rai.
Mukerjea had gone to the police station last week, but the Mumbai police had refused to accept a written statement from him and he was told that when the police needed, they would call him for questioning.
A local court had earlier extended the police custody of the three accused – Indrani, Sanjeev Khanna and Shyam Rai – till September 5.
