MUMBAI: In what can be called one of the most shocking news to rock the Indian broadcast fraternity, the Mumbai Police reportedly arrested former Star India CEO Peter Mukerjea's wife Indrani Mukerjea.

As per news pouring out late Tuesday night (25 August), which rocked the business capital of India, Indrani was taken into custody for allegedly playing a role in her sister Sheena Bora's murder in 2012. 

She was produced in court on Tuesday and remanded in police custody till 31 August.

Reports also suggests that Indrani and her driver Shyam Manav Manohar Rai were involved in disposing off Bora's dead body in the jungles of Raigad. 



Indrani was arrested by suburban Khar police, DCP (Detection) Dhananjay Kulkarni.

Kulkarni told ANI, "We have arrested two accused (Indrani Mukerjea and her driver) under IPC sections 302 (murder), 201 (causing disappearance of evidence), 34 (criminal conspiracy)."

Indrani co-founded 9X Media in 2007 along with Peter Mukerjea and headed it as CEO. The company was an amalgamation of INX Media Pvt Ltd and INX News Pvt Ltd, where Peter held the post of chairman and chief strategy officer. However, the husband - wife duo exited the business together in 2009 when the management changed.

The two got married in 2002, when Indrani was working as an HR consultant at Star India where Peter was the CEO.
