TV baron Peter Mukerjea records statement in Sheena Bora case
Television baron Peter Mukerjea recorded his statement on the murder of his step daughter Sheena Bora at Khar police station in Mumbai on Wednesday.
Peter’s wife Indrani — the mother of Sheena — is under arrest in the case along with her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyamvar Rai.
Police sources said the former CEO of Star TV was abroad in Europe when the murder took place on April 24, 2012.
Police are likely to question him on various aspects of the case, including his earlier claim that Sheena was introduced to him as Indrani’s sister.Peter told Hindustan Times earlier that he and his family would cooperate with the police in the investigations. He was questioned by the Mumbai Police last week, but not asked to give a written statement.
Indrani and the other two accused were arrested on August 24 for allegedly strangling Sheena inside a car in Mumbai three years ago and dumping the body in the forests of nearby Raigad.
Peter met Indrani while he was working as CEO with Star. The two left the group five years after they got married in 2002 and founded INX media.
Sheena Bora was engaged to Rahul, Peter’s son from an earlier marriage, when she was murdered.
