Sheena Bora case: HC rejects Peter's plea for cop diary
Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Friday rejected a petition filed by former media baron Peter Mukerjea, an accused in the Sheena Bora murder case, seeking a case diary from the suburban Khar police.
Justice Anuja Prabhudessai held that there is no law which gives the accused person the right to access the police
case diary (where details of probe are recorded daily) on mere suspicion that it might contain some contradictory material.
Mukerjea had demanded access to the personal diary maintained by sub-inspector Ganesh Dalvi, a prosecution witness who was part of the team that arrested prime accused Indrani Mukerjea's driver, Shyamvar Rai.
Rai later turned an `approver' (prosecution witness). Rai, originally arrested under the Arms Act in 2015, told police about the 2012 murder of Sheena Bora, Indrani's daughter from an earlier relationship.
