Indrani Mukherjea, the wife of former Star CEO (India) Peter Mukherjea, was arrested in Mumbai on Tuesday for the murder of her sister three years ago.
Seeking her remand at Bandra Metropolitan Magistrate’s court, the police claimed that Indrani’s arrest was neccesary after they found specific leads showing her allegedly linked to the kidnapping of Sheena and the disposing of her body after setting her ablaze.
Mrs Mukherjea’s driver, who was arrested a few days ago on a tip-off, allegedly told the police about her role in the murder and also directed them to the spot where the remains of Sheena Bora’s body were found.
In two days of questioning, the driver has reportedly told the police that the sisters had a property or financial dispute.
A court remanded both accused in police custody till August 31, police spokesperson Dhananjay Kulkarni said.
Asked for his side of the story, Peter Mukerjea said, “I don’t have a side…. We understand that an FIR has been filed. Whatever cooperation that the police require from the family we will provide. We hope the whole issue would be resolved early.”
