To nail Peter Mukerjea’s lie in connection with Sheena Bora murder case the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday got a nod from a special court here to conduct Narco test on the former media baron.
Peter, 59, was arrested on November 19 from his home in Mumbai’s Worli area and has been in CBI custody since then.
Among other things, the CBI contends that Peter was aware of the killing of Sheena, the daughter of his wife Indrani Mukerjea.
In August, Mumbai police had arrested Indrani, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and her former driver Shyamwar Rai in connection with the murder.
The trio of Indrani, Khanna and Rai is in CBI custody till December 3.
A special court here on Thursday extended till November 30 the CBI custody of former media baron Peter Mukerjea, one of the four prime accused in the sensational Sheena Bora murder case, as investigators zeroed in on financial matters as the motive behind the killing.
Peter was presented before a CBI court on Thursday afternoon after he was brought here from New Delhi where he was taken for investigation by the agency three days ago.
Sheena (24) was burnt and dumped in a forested patch in Raigad, about 84 km from Mumbai.
Indrani and others were arrested in August this year by Mumbai police after which the case was transferred to CBI.
In May 2012, the Pen police received information that the burnt remains of a body have been found at a deserted spot on the Pen-Khopoli Road.
Pen police station inspector Suresh Mirghe along with Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) Pradeep Chavan and some constables reached the spot and conducted panchnama of the spot and sent the body for post-mortem.
