NEW DELHI: The Cen­tral Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion (CBI) sleuths have ques­tioned for­mer me­dia hon­cho Peter Muk­er­jea on the own­er­ship de­tails of two res­i­den­tial prop­er­ties in Delhi, agency of­fi­cials said on Wed­nes­day, widen­ing the probe into a fi­nan­cial an­gle be­lieved to be be­hind the 2012 mur­der of Sheena Bora.

Muk­er­jea, the step-fa­ther of Sheena, was brought to Delhi on Tues­day for “cus­to­dial in­ter­ro­ga­tion” in the case which has grabbed the na­tion’s at­ten­tion af­ter her mother In­drani Muk­er­jea was ar­rested for al­legedly mur­der­ing the 24-year-old.

The CBI will also seek ex­ten­sion of Peter’s cus­tody which ex­pires on Thurs­day, an agency source said, adding that he is also likely to be put through a poly­graph and voice spec­trog­ra­phy test at the Delhi-based Cen­tral Foren­sic Science Lab­o­ra­tory soon.

The in­ves­ti­gat­ing agency, which sus­pects fi­nan­cial trans­ac­tions to be the mo­tive be­hind the crime, has been grilling Muk­er­jea re­gard­ing his fi­nan­cial deal­ings in­clud­ing trans­ac­tions re­lated to “two flats in Vas­ant Kunj and South Ex­ten­sion,” the source said.

Among the fi­nan­cial as­pects un­der the agency’s scan­ner is a 2004 trans­ac­tion, wherein In­drani al­legedly named Sheena in her 2004 will as the heir to a south Delhi flat, which she owned jointly with Peter.
