NEW DELHI: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday clarified that all the taped conversations among Indrani Mukerjea, Peter Mukerjea and his son Rahul Mukerjea being played in media, indicating that there was an attempt to cover up the Sheena Bora murder case, have been taken into account during the investigation and have also been submitted in the court.

“All the tapes being played on certain channels on the Sheena Bora murder case have been taken into account during the CBI investigation. These form an integral part of the evidence against Peter Mukherjee and others which have already been submitted in the court. The matter is sub-judice,” said the investigative agency in a statement.

A set of 20 tapes, which have been exclusively accessed by leading English news channel, are part of the evidence that has been presented by the CBI as part of the ongoing investigation into the murder of Sheena Bora. The recordings were made by Peter Mukerjea's son Rahul, who had been in a relationship with Bora.

As reported, the recordings feature Rahul in conversation with Indrani and Peter, across a period of two weeks beginning with what seems to be the immediate aftermath of the murder.

Indrani, Khanna and Shyamwar Rai had allegedly strangled Sheena Bora, Peter's daughter from an earlier relationship, inside a car in April 2012. The trio was arrested in August last year, while Peter was arrested in November.

Sheena's body was found in a forest in Raigad. The crime, which came to light in August, last year, is allegedly linked to certain financial dealings.
