The Hush Post: Jailed in the infamous Sheena Bora murder case, Indrani and Peter Mukerjea have applied for the divorce. They have filed a divorce petition in a Mumbai court.
Since her arrest in 2015, a 46-year-old Indrani Mukerjea, co-owner of a TV channel is lodged in Byculla’s women’s jail. And Peter Mukerjea is presently in the Arthur Road Jail.
In April this year, Indrani had sent a divorce notice to Peter saying that their marriage had “irretrievably broken down”. This month, a CBI court had rejected Indrani’s request for bail citing ill-health and “threat” to life in jail, a report said.
Notably, in 2012, Indrani Mukerjea’s daughter from her first marriage Sheena Bora was killed. For three years, Indrani told the relatives and friends that Sheena Bora had gone to the US. Sheena’s murder came to light almost in 2015 when Mukerjea’s driver revealed the chilling details of the crime.
The police arrested Indrani, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyamvar Rai in August 2015 for the alleged murder. In November 2015, the police arrested Peter Mukerjea on the charges of being a part of the conspiracy.
The shocking Sheena Bora murder case and the details that emerged had shocked the entire country.
In June chest pain complaint led Indrani’s hospitalization.
