Sheena Bora murder case: Special CBI court directs banks to verify Indrani

In the latest development of Sheena Bora murder case, a special CBI court has ordered banks and different institutions to verify the signatures on all documents sent by Indrani Mukerjea and not to act on any of them until the verification is complete.

According to media reports, the court's had ordered to verify Indrani's signature after Peter Mukerjea revealed that Indrani had forged his signature on several bank documents relinquishing his rights over their joint accounts.


The letter, according to a Time of India report, submitted by Peter's lawyers, was sent by Indrani after getting permission of court to send certain documents to banks.

The report said Peter's lawyers Mihir Gheewala and Amit Ghag moved an "urgent" handwritten application on his behalf before special CBI trial court Judge H S Mahajan, saying that on Wednesday a Mumbai bank said it had received a letter from Peter.

The letter said he was "relinquishing his rights over a bank account which is jointly held by him and Indrani—both accused in the Sheena Bora murder case—along with 49 NRE fixed deposits".

Gheewali had told newspaper that it was is abundantly clear that Accused Number 1 (Indrani) has perpetuated a fraud on the court by presenting an annexure of a draft letter purportedly of Accused Number 4 (Peter). Moreover, Indrani could have either forged the signatures herself or done it through someone else.
