MUMBAI, July 19 - Peter Mukerjea had along with his wife Indrani Mukerjea conspired to kill her daughter Sheena Bora as they were not happy with her relationship with Peter�s son Rahul, the CBI told the Bombay High Court today while opposing the former media baron�s bail plea.
The agency also said that probe in the case was still on and it is at a crucial stage, and hence releasing Peter on bail would be �prejudicial� and would hamper the case.
�Peter Mukerjea along with the other accused entered into criminal conspiracy to commit the heinous crime with a cool mind, in a premeditated and planned manner. Both Indrani and Peter were not happy with the love affair of Sheena and Rahul Mukerjea,� the agency said in its affidavit.
The agency submitted its affidavit before Justice P N Deshmukh today while opposing Peter�s bail plea.
Justice Deshmukh later posted the plea for next hearing on July 27.
Peter, who was arrested by CBI on November 19 last year for his alleged involvement in Sheena�s murder, had approached the high court seeking bail after the sessions court rejected his plea.
In his bail plea, he claimed that there is nothing incriminating against him in the CBI charge sheet.
Peter is the fourth accused to be arrested in the murder case, along with wife Indrani, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna, and her former driver Shyamvar Rai. � PTI
