Sheena Bora Murder: Bombay High Court Rejects Peter Mukherjea’s Bail Plea

The Bombay High Court rejected the bail plea of former media baron Peter Mukerjea, arrested in the 2012 murder case of Sheena Bora. Peter, who was arrested in the case by CBI in November last year, had approached the high court seeking bail after the sessions court rejected the same. In his bail plea, Peter refuted CBI’s contention that he and Indrani hatched the conspiracy to murder Sheena as they were against her relation with Rahul Mukerjea. His lawyer argued that Peter had no hatred towards Sheena, and that he was fooled by Indrani and kept in the dark. He further claimed that Peter was kept in the dark by Indrani, who claimed that Sheena was alive and had fled from the country.
