Sheena Bora murder probe: Two south Delhi flats under scanner
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.
