In Sheena Bora murder case: Bombay HC grants bail to Peter Mukherjea

As per the order, the Bombay high court stayed its own order for six weeks so that the prosecution can move the Supreme court

Mumbai: In Sheena Bora murder case the Bombay High Court on Thursday granted bail to Peter Mukerjea who is one of the main accused. However, despite the bail, Mukerjea won’t be out of the jail.

Peter Mukherjea had applied for a bail-in April 2019 but the case did not come up for hearing until today.

As per the order, the Bombay high court stayed its own order for six weeks so that the prosecution can move the Supreme court. The court also observed that prima facie (based on the first impression) no evidence has been found against Peter Mukerjea.

Peter Mukerjea’s bail plea had been rejected by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). In his petition, the murder accused had claimed that the CBI does not have enough evidence against him. Last year the bail petition was rejected by a Special CBI court.

Peter Mukherjea had been lodged in the Arthur Road jail for allegedly murdering his daughter Sheena Bora. Peter’s wife Indrani is the main accused in the case.
