Rahul Mukerjea, son of accused Peter Mukerjea in the Sheena Bora murder case, on Sunday said that his father is innocent.
“I can’t give the reasons because the case is being investigated. I am confident that my father is innocent,” Rahul said.
On Friday, Peter was charged with murder and criminal conspiracy by the CBI, which said he had played an active role in the killing. His police custody will end on Monday and the CBI is expected to seek further remand of his, a CBI officer said.
Earlier in the day, Rahul went to the CBI office and handed over the documents belonging to Sheena, CBI officials said. Those are the documents with which Sheena was “blackmailing”, a CBI source said.
“Rahul Mukerjea is an important link in the murder of Sheena Bora as he has provided several important materials to the investigators against the accused in the case,” the source added.
