‘What if Sheena Bora’s vanished, why fuss,’ Peter Mukerjea told Rahul

MUMBAI: A year after Indrani Mukerjea’s arrest in the Sheena Bora murder case, phone conversations between Rahul and his father Peter Mukerjea, also an accused, and his stepmother, Indrani, appears to place Mukerjea in a corner.

The CBI had relied on seven out of 20 transcripts in the chargesheet. Now it has given the remaining 13 to the accused. In one of the conversations, Peter tells Rahul: “What if she (Sheena) has disappeared, why are you making all this fuss”. This is a considerably damning conversation. The conversations were recorded by Rahul.
TOI had reported significant sections of the transcripts that was earlier submitted by the CBI in its chargesheet. The tapes show how Peter is pacifying Rahul after Sheena “left” him.
CDs of the conversations, handed over by CBI on a plea made by Indrani in court, has Rahul on one end of the phone and Indrani, Peter on the other, mostly together.Indrani had sought the audio tapes since the CBI had submitted only half of the transcripts along with its second chargesheet against Peter as the agency said it relied only on those parts. Much of it appeared incorrectly transcribed, said the defence lawyers as they sought the CD.
In one conversation Rahul is heard telling Peter, “I don’t need to know where she (Sheena) is. I need to know if she’s okay.” In another, Peter is heard saying, “you need to get over it.’
