Mumbai, Nov 30: A special court here on Monday extended the CBI custody by a day -- till Tuesday -- of former media tycoon Peter Mukerjea, one of the four prime accused in the Shee Bora murder case. The Central Bureau of Investigation sought four days custody of Mukerjea for investigation pertaining to certain fincial transactions and other issues connected with the case.
The CBI said it also wanted to ascertain whether Mukerjea gave any wrong replies during the polygraph test he underwent in New Delhi on November 28.
Strongly opposing further remand, the defence lawyer claimed that Mukerjea had nothing to hide and he had willingly undergone the polygraph test.
Mukerjea was arrested on November 19 from his home in Mumbai's Worli area and has been in CBI custody since then.
Among other things, the CBI contends that Mukerjea was aware of the killing of Shee, the daughter of his wife Indrani Mukerjea.
In August, Mumbai police arrested Indrani, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khan and her former driver Shyamwar Rai in connection with Shee's murder.
The trio of Indrani, Khan and Rai is in CBI custody till December 3.
