Rahul Mukerjea was also allegedly facing threat from his step mother Indrani which he had conveyed to his father Peter Mukerjea through an email sent about a year before the murder of his girlfriend Sheena Bora.
CBI which is probing the murder of Bora has attached this conversation in the supplementary charge sheet which mentions that Peter knew that his wife Indrani has allegedly issued threats to his son Rahul and her daughter from her first marriage Sheena, sources said.
Fearing threats, Sheena and Rahul had taken a backup of all the mails, messages, documents for safekeeping, they said.
In the mail dated April 13, 2011, Rahul told Peter, “On several occasions, we have received threats from Indrani…I have protected myself and Sheena by documenting mails, history, conversations and messages included.”
He wrote that he had put these for safekeeping and threatened to make them public “should anything happen to either Sheena or me”, the mail alleged.
CBI has alleged that Peter was actively involved in the conspiracy to murder Sheena which was hatched by Indrani, her second husband Sanjiv Khanna and driver Shyamvar Rai who all have been arrested by the agency.
Peter was also told by Rahul that he was not sure if messages coming from his father’s phone were actually sent by him or not. Rahul had accused his father of allegedly using the email accounts of Indrani and Khanna’s daughter Vidhie to send mails to Sheena, it alleged.
“Please also remember that you yourselves involved young Vidhie in all of this by using her email account to send emails in the first place and by giving her the phone when Sheena wanted an explanation from Indrani,” he said in the mail.
