The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) refuted allegations that the call data records of driver Shyamwar Rai — an approver in the Sheena Bora murder case — had been tampered with.
Defence lawyers had claimed that the prosecution had tampered with these records as some details were missing. Peter Mukerjea and his wife, Indrani, had filed similar applications, alleging that the records were manipulated to suit the prosecution story’s regarding Rai’s arrest on August 21, 2015.
The prosecution said the Khar police arrested Rai at Carter Road in Bandra, while he was on his way to dispose of the pistol allegedly given to him on Indrani’s instructions. The defence contested this account, saying Rai was detained much earlier.
CBI officials, however, said they produced evidence to support their statement.
On Friday, the defence moved an application seeking the police’s log record of the jeep they were in when they nabbed Rai. They have also demanded the call data record of two Khar police officers — Ganesh Dalvi – who investigated Rai’s illegal possession of arms and Dinesh Kadam, who was investigating officer for the Bora murder case.
