MUMBAI: Former media baron Peter Mukerjea, arrested in Sheena Bora murder case with his wife Indrani, today filed an application in the CBI court here seeking permission to use a laptop in the prison so he could write his autobiography.
"I want to write an autobiography and for that I want a laptop without Internet in the jail," Peter told the special CBI court judge H S Mahajan during the hearing today.
In a handwritten application, Peter also said he was finding it very difficult to write in long-hand.
If allowed, he would work on the laptop for four hours a day and afterwards hand it back to jail authorities, the application said.
"(I am) 61 years old and suffering from occasional memory fatigue and laptop will be of great help to aid in continuing the work without locating details during the writing and scripting process," Peter said in the application.
He also applied for permission to go to Bangalore to attend the wedding of his niece.
CBI is likely to file its reply to his applications on December 14.
The court is likely to hear arguments on framing of charges in the Sheena Bora murder case on December 19.
Interestingly, the court had at the last hearing granted the prime accused in the case Indrani Mukerjea's application seeking permission to deposit some demonetised currency notes in the bank (through someone outside the jail).
Indrani, her former driver Shyam Rai (who has turned approver in the case) and her former husband Sanjeev Khanna are accused of killing her daughter Sheena inside a car in April 2012. Peter is accused of being party to the conspiracy.
