A special CBI court on Tuesday framed charges against media tycoon Peter Mukerjea, his wife Indrani Mukerjea and her former husband Sanjeev Khanna in the 2012 murder case of Sheena Bora.

All the accused were charged with murder and criminal conspiracy before a special court presided over by Additional Sessions Judge H S Mahajan. They pleaded “not guilty” to the charges, which were explained to them, and said they would face trial. 

The three were charged under Indian Penal Code Sections 120(b) (criminal conspiracy), 364 (kidnapping), 302 (murder), 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention), 203 (giving false information in respect of an offence) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence). 

Additionally, Indrani and Khanna were charged under IPC Sections 307 (attempt to murder) and 120(b) for plotting to kill her son and Sheena’s brother Mikhail Bora.

The CBI in its chargesheet said 52 witnesses were examined. Besides the main chargesheet, it had filed two supplementary chargesheets.
