Former media baron, accused in the sensational Sheena Bora murder case, has been granted bail by the Bombay High Court. As per television reports, the court has cited a lack of prima facie evidence against Mukerjea in the case. Mukerjea, however, may not be able to walk free from jail with the court granting a week’s time to the prosecution to approach the Supreme Court against the decision.

According to a report in PTI, Justice Nitin Sambre while granting bail directed Mukrjea not contact his children Rahul Mukerjea and Vidhi Mukerjea and other witnesses in the case. Peter was arrested on November 19, 2015. The court in its order said that there was no prima facie evidence to infer that Peter was involved in the crime. It said that when the crime took place, Peter was not in India.

“Except for statement of the approver in the case, Shyamwar Rai, there is no reference to Peter Mukerjea in any evidence. There is no other evidence to show his involvement in the conspiracy,” the court was quoted as saying by PTI.

More details awaited.
