In the recent development of the Sheena Bora case, stepfather of Sheena Bora, Peter Mukherjea was finally arrested by the Crime Branch of Mumbai under the section 201 (for causing the disappearance of evidence of offence, or giving false information to screen offender). The former media baron Peter Mukherjea was arrested on Thursday by CBI in connection with the probe into the 2012 murder case of Sheena Bora, this arrest took place consequent to the filing of the charge sheet in Sheena Bora murder case in the Esplanade court in Mumbai.
The arrest of Peter is the fourth arrest in this case following the prime accused Indrani Mukherjea, mother of Sheena, her stepfather Sanjeev Khanna and Indrani’s former driver Shyamver Rai. Before handing the case over the CBI, police informed that, Peter’s son Rahul Mukherjea was engaged to 24-year-old Sheena Bora at the time of her murder and that Peter and Indrani were against this relationship.
The CBI officials did not elaborate much on the nature of involvement of Peter, in this case, but they claimed that during the interrogation Indrani had slipped enough hints, “She has given enough indications about the Peter being aware of the murder of Sheena,” claimed CBI official.
Mahesh Jethmalani, who earlier represented Peter, has told the media that he was informed about Peter Mukherjea’s arrest by his sister and that he will not be representing Peter in this case and he is not aware who will represent him.
After the two months of investigation, CBI has filed the 1000 pages charge sheet in this case which includes the 150 witness statements and 200 documents. CBI also informed that during the investigation, the medical board has minutely examined the skeleton as well as the skull and did the superimposition of the skull to establish the identity of the deceased, Sheena Bora. According to the claim made by an AIIMS medical board confirmed that the remains exhumed bones from Raigad belong to Sheena. The opinion of a board which they handed over to CBI was based on the latest computerized technology which they used to superimpose the skull to establish the identity of Sheena.
The head of forensic department at AIIMS, Dr. Sudhir Gupta said that, they have used the latest forensic science and technology to establish the identity if the deceased and it was tried first time at AIIMS “The superimposition technology uses an image of the deceased’s skull, and uses imaging technology to reconstruct and superimpose the skull from photographs of the bones that were exhumed. We used this technique for the first time to establish the remains were that of Sheena Bora.” Gupta claimed.
The AIIMS team which visited Mumbai for the examination of exhumed bones claimed that this examination and age estimation helped us confirm that the remains were that of a 23-24-year-old woman, whose height was around 5 feet and the weight matched that of Sheena Bora.
