A special court on Wednesday granted permission to the CBI to interrogate the four arrested accused in the Sheena Bora murder case — Sheena’s mother Indrani Mukerjea, her husband Peter, former husband Sanjeev Khanna and former driver Shyamwar Rai — for ten days.
The CBI told the court that it wants to gather more evidence and investigate if other people were involved in the conspiracy. The probe agency also said it needed to examine Peter’s phone, which can only be opened using his thumb impression.
Rai, too, moved an application in the court on Wednesday, asking to be shifted out of Arthur Road jail, claiming he is under stress at the present facility. The judge, however, said that the matter was not for him to decide and directed Rai to write to the jail authorities instead.
