MUMBAI- Peter Mukerjea was arrested on Thursday by the CBI in connection with the probe into the 2012 murder of his stepdaughter Sheena Bora. He has been booked under IPC Section 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence, or giving false information to screen offender). Peter’s arrest, the fourth in the case, came hours after the CBI filed a chargesheet against Sheena’s mother Indrani, her stepfather Sanjeev Khanna, and Indrani’s former driver Shyamvar Rai in the Esplanade court in Mumbai.

Peter’s son Rahul was engaged to 24-year-old Sheena at the time of her murder and police claimed that Peter and Indrani did not approve of this relationship. While CBI officers did not elaborate on the nature of Peter’s involvement in the case, they claimed that during her questioning, Indrani had dropped enough hints.

Earlier Thursday, the CBI filed its chargesheet in the case after a two-month investigation. The chargesheet runs into more than 1,000 pages and includes 150 witness statements and 200 documents. In a statement, the CBI said: “During investigation, a medical board minutely examined the skeleton as well as conducted superimposition of the skull which established the identity of the deceased (Sheena). After thorough investigation, CBI filed a chargesheet against… three accused persons.”
