Peter had nothing to do with Sheena’s murder, says lawyer
Seeking bail for former media baron Peter Mukerjea, his lawyer on Thursday claimed in a court here that his client had nothing to do with the murder of Sheena Bora.
Peter’s wife and Sheena’s mother Indrani is the prime accused in the case.
Peter’s lawyer, advocate Aabad Ponda, on Thursday argued in the court of special CBI judge HS Mahajan that CBI picked up sentences from the statements of witnesses shorn of context to claim that Peter wanted to kill Sheena.
Peter was not against the relationship between Sheena and Rahul (his son from earlier marriage) and in fact he blessed them when they got engaged, Ponda said, adding that Indrani, on the other hand, was against this relationship.
“It is because of (Peter’s) `karma’ and fate that he got Indrani as his wife,’ the lawyer said.
About the allegation that Peter and Indrani were in constant touch during the period when crime took place (April 2012), Ponda said these were normal calls between husband and wife.
