Former media baron Peter Mukerjea, arrested in connection with the Sheena Bora murder case, on Monday filed a bail application before the special CBI court saying that CBI had not found any evidence against him.

“It will be heard tomorrow (Tuesday),” said his lawyer Kushal Mor.

The application contends that CBI has found no evidence to justify his arrest, though it had his custody for 11 days and even subjected him to psycho-analysis and polygraph tests. The CBI itself later applied for his transfer to judicial custody (where he is now), which shows that it completed the investigation and would not require further custody, it says.

Meanwhile, the special CBI court on Monday allowed Indrani Mukerjea to sign some cheques for meeting the educational expenses of her daughter Vidhie. Special judge HS Mahajan allowed an application moved by Indrani in this regard.

Vidhie, Indrani’s daughter with her former husband Sanjeev Khanna, was also present in the court.
