The Central Bureau of Investigation is likely to seek the custody of Peter Mukerjea one of the promoters of the INX Media case. The move comes after the CBI confronted Karti Chidambaram with Indrani Mukerjea at the Byculla jail in Mumbai on Sunday.
Peter is currently lodged in the Arthur Road jail in connection with the Sheena Bora murder case. Indrani claimed that she along with Peter had met with Karti and offered a bribe for FIPB clearance for INX Media.
CBI sources said that they are trying to get a statement from Peter like the way they did with Indrani. She had recorded her statement under Section 164 of the CrPC in which she alleged that a bribe had been paid to Karti.
During the confrontation on Sunday, Indrani reiterated her stand. Karti, however, denied the allegations while adding that he had neither sought or got any bribe.
