    In a stunning twist to the Sheena Bora murder case, Indrani Mukerjea on Wednesday told a CBI court that her husband Peter Mukerjea might be responsible for her daughter's disappearance.

    Indrani also alleged that Peter and others, might have manipulated the circumstances to frame her and influence witnesses and situations that led to her arrest.

    Though she did not expressly accuse Peter, a former media baron, of killing Sheena, Indrani said he and their former driver Shyamwar Rai could be behind her abduction, making her untraceable and destroying evidence.

    "I have strong reasons to believe that Peter Mukerjea, with the assistance of other persons, including (accused turned approver) Shyamwar Rai may have conspired and abducted my daughter Sheena in 2012 and made her untraceable and subsequently destroyed evidence," she said in an application in which she sought the call data record (CDR) of Peter.

    "I am convinced that if we are able to obtain the CDR of Peter, we will be in a better position to ascertain if Peter and other persons were involved in the disappearance of my daughter Sheena and there will be more clarity if Peter and other persons have a role in framing me," she said in the application.

    The alleged murder of Sheena Bora came to light in August, 2015 after Rai, arrested in another case, spilled the beans and Mumbai police arrested Indrani, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna, and Rai.

    While Rai, Indrani and Khanna were arrested in August 2015, her husband, Peter Mukerjea, was nabbed in November that year.

    Later, in November that year, the case was transferred to the CBI.
