Accused in the murder case of Sheena Bora and former media head honcho Peter Mukherjea on November 27 moved an application before the special CBI court in Mumbai, seeking permission to operate his bank locker.
Peter in his application has stated that he wants to hand over some gold ornaments and belonging to estranged wife and co-accused Indrani Mukerjea, as per the consented terms of their divorce petition.
Peter told the court that when they got married he had given some gold to Indrani and she had also brought in some gold with her — all that now has to be handed over to Indrani.
Peter and Indrani had moved For Divorce on mutual understanding at the Bandra Family Court in September, seeking dissolution of their marriage as per the Hindu Marriage Act. According to those in the know of consent terms for divorce, Peter has given away much of his property to end the marriage. This is both Peter’s and Indrani’s second marriage and they do not have a child.
Peter had legally adopted Indrani’s daughter Vidhi from her earlier marriage.
