MUM­BAI: The CBI on Satur­day op­posed for­mer CEO Peter Muk­er­jea’s bail ap­pli­ca­tion. The cen­tral agency told the court Peter’s wife In­drani had ad­mit­ted she con­fessed to mur­der­ing her daugh­ter Sheena Bora, a day af­ter the in­ci­dent in 2012.

The CBI, in a writ­ten re­ply to the bail ap­pli­ca­tion filed by Peter, claimed In­drani re­vealed this dur­ing in­ter­ro­ga­tion. The CBI claimed Peter had played a key role in the con­spir­acy to con­ceal the mur­der. While op­pos­ing the bail, CBI coun­sel Bharat Badami sub­mit­ted that fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion was still in progress and he should not be re­leased on bail.

Peter had, on Jan­uary 4, moved a bail ap­pli­ca­tion stat­ing he has been falsely im­pli­cated by the agency. “It is ab­surd to sug­gest that the ap­pli­cant would con­spire with his wife’s ex-hus­band to mur­der Sheena. The ap­pli­cant did not stand to gain any­thing from the mur­der of Sheena and the CBI has mis­er­ably failed to even re­motely show what has been the gain. All the al­le­ga­tions by CBI in this re­gards are in air,” Peter said in his bail ap­pli­ca­tion.
