In a new twist in Sheena Bora murder case, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) report has said that Indrani and Peter Mukerjea laundered up to Rs. 275.5 crore by their company, INX Media.
CBDT says the Mukerjeas laundered foreign funds into INX Media via dubious investment firms based in Port Louis, Mauritius.
The money laundering took place through eight subsidiary companies between 2007 and 2008.
The report was submitted by a Government of India Deputy Secretary in the investigation wing of the CBDT to the Director-General of Income Tax on May 5, 2014.
The report reveals a complex web of ‘conduit’ business firms infusing domestic and foreign capital into the INX Group.
Noteworthy, In 2008-09, INX Media had declared a loss of Rs. 270 crore.
CBI has already arrested Peter Mukherjea along with filing chargesheets against Indrani Mukerjea, ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and Shyamvar Rai in the Sheena Bora murder case.
