The divorce was amicable and the court was satisfied that it was a fit case for dissolution of the 17-year-old marriage, Indrani’s lawyer said.
Peter Mukerjea, currently in judicial custody, is facing Sheena Bora murder trial along with his wife Indrani and Sanjeev Khanna.
As both Mukherjee and her husband are accused in a murder case which is also being investigated by the CBI, no credibility can be attached to their statements, the Congress veteran said.
Indrani Mukerjea had recorded her confessional statement against Chidambaram and his son Karti following which she was made an "approver" in the graft case.
The ED told the SC that Chidambaram had 11 "immovable properties" and 17 bank accounts abroad and his custodial interrogation was required to unearth the larger conspiracy in the case.
Mukerjea's High Court plea mentioned that the CBI does not have evidence against him and cites medical conditions for seeking bail.
The 65-year-old, who is in jail since his arrest by the CBI in 2015, was Sunday admitted to the state-run J J Hospital after he complained of chest pain.
Mukerjea, who was lodged at the Arthur Road Jail in Central Mumbai, had been complaining of chest pain for the last few days, a police official said.
Peter Mukerjea, arrested in the sensational Sheena Bora murder case in 2015, had moved the bail application in November last year before special CBI Judge J C Jagdale.
Badami told the court Peter Mukerjea didn't take any step to find Sheena Bora, who had gone missing, despite the fact that she was his son Rahul Mukerjea's fiancee.
The veteran Congress leader’s role had come under the scanner of various investigating agencies in the Rs 3,500-crore Aircel-Maxis deal and the INX Media case involving Rs 305 crore.
According to the CBI, Indrani had called Peter at around 12.26 pm from a forest area in Pen in Raigad district, where Sheena's body was dumped, and informed him that they have found a 'good place'.
Chidambaram's alleged role came under the scanner of investigating agencies in connection with the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance of Rs 305 crore.
INX Media Ltd, which was owned by Mukerjea, had allegedly paid bribes to get a Foreign Investment Promotion Board approval, which was facilitated by ex finance minister P Chidambaram's son.
The ED has summoned some ex-Finance Ministry officials, who were handling FIPB issues in 2007, in connection with its money laundering probe in the INX media deal case.
