Jail officials oppose Peter’s plea for home-cooked food

Officials of the Arthur Road Jail, where former media baron Peter Mukerjea has been kept in connection with the Sheena Bora murder case, on Wednesday opposed his plea for home-made food, which he has sought citing ailments.

“The jail officials said that they can make the food less spicy and less oily for Peter Mukerjea. However, they objected to our home food application,” said Peter’s lawyer Kushal Mor.

The court is likely to pass an order on Peter’s application on Thursday.

Two days ago, Peter Mukerjea, through Kushal Mor, had moved an application in a magistrate court seeking home food in jail as he is a “senior citizen having heart ailments and has been taking medicine to lower his cholesterol”. The same day his judicial custody was extended till December 28 by the court.

The CBI, which is investigating the case, had also opposed his home food application.
