Not her Pratim
On Wednesday, before the hearing of the Sheena Bora murder trial, Indrani addressed the court to say that she wanted to submit an application demanding the call detail records (CDR) for her husband's number from the BPL network (now Loop network). She requested records for 2012 (the year Sheena was murdered) and 2015 (the year Indrani and Peter were arrested).
In the application, she states: "I have strong reason to believe that Pratim Mukerjea (Peter Mukerjea), with the assistance of other persons, including Shyamvar Rai, may have conspired to abduct my daughter Sheena Bora in 2012, and made her untraceable and subsequently destroyed the evidence."
Indrani has remained the prime suspect since Sheena's murder was uncovered in 2015, as relations were said to be trained between the two of them, particularly since Indrani refused to acknowledge Sheena as her daughter in public. It was later that Peter was arrested too, on the suspicion that he had known about the murder conspiracy and actively tried to cover it up.
'Check his call records'
Addressing herself as Indrani Pratim Mukerjea in the application, she concludes, "I offer my sincere gratitude to your honour for your kindness and endeavour to provide justice to my daughter, Sheena, who may have lost her life on account of greed, betrayal, jealously, lust and ill-will of persons whom she dearly loved and trusted."
After Indrani addressed the court, the Special CBI court judge JC Jagdale had asked her to move the application in the presence of her advocate and also provide a copy to Peter and the CBI. At the end of the hearing, Indrani's lawyer Gunjan Mangla presented the two-page, handwritten application before the court, and copies were given to other parties in the case.
