Sheena Bora murder: Judicial custody of all accused extended till Aug.1

Mumbai, July 18 (ANI): The judicial custody of all accused persons in the Sheena Bora murder case was on Monday extended till August 1.

The Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court had last week adjourned the hearing on Peter Mukerjea's application which sought the statement of witness number 32 till July 20.

The central agency, in its supplementary chargesheet filed in February, had submitted a statement of an unnamed witness in a sealed cover.

The CBI had said they are not revealing the identity or the statement of the witness as investigation was going on.

The special court earlier on July 1gave copies of Shyamwar Rai's confession to co-accused Sanjeev Khanna and others on a Bombay High court directive.

The court earlier on July 4 extended the judicial custody of Indrani Mukerja, Khanna and Peter Mukerjea till July 18.

Indrani Mukerjea, Sanjeev Khanna and Shyamwar Rai had allegedly strangled Sheena Bora, Mukerjea's daughter from an earlier relationship, inside a car in April 2012.

The trio was arrested in August last year, while Peter Mukerjea was arrested in November.

Sheena Bora's body was found in a forest in Raigad. The crime, which came to light in August last year, is allegedly linked to certain financial dealings. (ANI)
