Peter Mukerjea, Indrani Mukerjea's husband and co-accused in the Sheena Bora murder case replied to special CBI court on Thursday to claims made by his wife that her charges are a figment of her imagination. 

On November 15, Indrani in a special court hearing had claimed that she had "strong reasons to believe" that Peter "may have conspired and abducted" her daughter back in 2012.

The statement was the first time that Indrani blamed husband Peter for being responsible for her daughter's alleged disappearance. It has been two years since the couple got arrested for their daughter's disappearance. 

Indrani had submitted a two-page handwritten document to the special CBI court seeking call records of Peter’s BPL mobile number. She not only blamed Peter but also accused Shyamvar Pinturam Rai of conspiring and helping abduct her daughter, Sheena Bora. She also mentioned that both are responsible for naming her as an accused in the case. 

She added that Peter may have influenced witnesses, situations and information to turn and twist the case in such a way that led to her arrest on August 25, 2015.

Peter Mukerjea, however, in a written statement to CBI claimed that Indrani is playing the victim card and that he does not want to be a part of mud-slinging.
