Mumbai : A special CBI court on Monday made prime accused Indrani Mukerjea’s former driver Shyamvar Rai an approver in the Sheena Bora murder case.
Rai has told the court, that he will reveal everything before it, including details about his role as well as that of others, in the murder case.
Rai, whose arrest last year led the police to unearth Sheena’s murder, had on May 11 told a special CBI court that he wants to turn approver in the case and sought pardon.
The investigating agency had earlier on May 17 sought time to file a reply on Rai’s application to be approver in a Special CBI court in Mumbai.
Indrani along with her husband Peter, former husband Sanjeev Khanna and Rai is an accused in the murder case of her daughter Sheena Bora in 2012.
While former media baron Peter was arrested in November 2015 for hiding and destroying evidences in this case, Indrani and two others were arrested by the police in August 2015 and they continue to be in custody since.
Peter, a co-accused in the case, had earlier in March moved a fresh bail plea before a special CBI court, calling the allegations levelled against him as ‘false, baseless and unbelievable’.
He also put the onus on his wife Indrani, saying that she was highly ambitious and was willing to go to any length for that.
In the bail application, Peter claimed that it was not him but Indrani, who objected to Rahul and Sheena’s relationship. He had also denied the allegation of being informed by Indrani about the murder and stated that the said calls were made by Indrani to her daughter Vidhie.
The media honcho was arrested on November 19 last year for his alleged role in the murder conspiracy in which his wife Indrani is the prime accused. (ANI)
