Mumbai, Nov. 26 : A Mumbai Esplanade court on Thursday extended former Star TV CEO Peter Mukherjea’s, who has been arrested in connection with Sheena Bora murder case, CBI custody till November 30.
Peter’s lawyer Mihir Gheewala said that his client had nothing to do with the case, adding that it would be wrong to link Peter’s financial transactions with Sheena Bora’s murder.
“At this point in time there are no clear details as to what is the financial transaction. Obviously, he (Peter) is a businessman, he has entered into several transactions but how are they connected to this case? It is something which is the duty of the CBI to show,” Gheewala told media here.
“CBI is exploring as to whether there was any investment or any money part in Sheena’s name. It is not their case that anything was invested in Sheena’s name. Peter has nothing to do with this,” he added.
Peter, who was taken to New Delhi for two days for questioning by senior CBI officials, was brought to Mumbai this morning as his CBI custody ends today.
The CBI is likely to seek his custody to further question him in connection with the sensational murder case.
Peter, husband of Indrani, was arrested on November 19 and granted CBI custody till today by a special court in Mumbai. (ANI)
