Sheena murder: Peter’s judicial custody extended till Jan 11

A magistrate court here on Monday extended the judicial custody of former media baron Peter Mukerjea till January 11 in the Sheena Bora murder case.

“The judicial custody is extended till January 11,” ordered magistrate RV Adone after Peter’s 14-day custody expired on Monday. Though Peter was not brought in the court, but his advocate Kushal Mor was present during the hearing.

“Peter could not be brought from the jail due to some issues pertaining to lack of staff,” special CBI prosecutor Kavita Patil told the court.

She also sought extension of the judicial custody, saying that the investigation is in the crucial stage. Peter, 59, husband of prime accused Indrani Mukerjea, was arrested on November 19 for his alleged role in the murder case and was in CBI custody for two weeks following which he was granted judicial remand.

He has been kept at the high-security Arthur Road Jail here, where other two accused in the case –Indrani’s former husband Sanjeev Khanna and her driver Shyamvar Rai –are also lodged.
