In another revelation in Sheena Bora murder case, Indrani Mukerjea had threatened her husband Peter Mukerjea that she would commit suicide to get joint ownership of a flat in south Mumbai’s Marlow Apartments.
In a statement to Mumbai Police in September, Peter Mukerjea had revealed that Indrani had blackmailed him by threatening to jump from the fourth floor if the flat’s ownership status wasn’t changed.
“When I was CEO of Star TV, Indrani was running M/s.INX Services. During the period in 2004, Indrani…insisted that flat number 18 may be registered in the joint name of Indrani and me. ..Indrani threatened that she will jump from the fourth floor. To avoid any untoward incident, I transferred 50 per cent shares of flat number 18 in the name of Indrani and got the flat registered in our joint name,” Peter’s statement said.
In his statement, Peter has claimed that the couple stayed on rent in flat number 18 in Marlow Apartments on Indrani’s insistence. However, not a single penny was paid by Indrani.
He further added that Flat No.19 on 5th Floor, which was purchased by the couple in the same building in 2005 for Rs 75 lakh, was also in the joint name of him and Indrani.
“There were frequent fights between me and Indrani,” Peter stated.
