Indrani Mukherjea, the wife of former Star India chief Peter Mukherjea, was arrested in Mumbai on Tuesday for the murder of her sister three years ago.
Sheena Bora was murdered in 2012 and her body was dumped in the forests of Raigad, 84 km from Mumbai. Indrani allegedly helped dispose of the body.
On Tuesday, Indrani, the founder of 9X Media, was questioned by a team led by Mumbai police chief Rakesh Maria for hours.
Indrani’s driver, who was arrested a few days ago on a tip-off, allegedly confessed to the murder and also revealed the role of his employer. He directed the police to the spot where the remains of Sheena Bora’s body were found. The remains have been sent for forensic tests.
In two days of questioning, the driver has reportedly told the police that the sisters had a property or financial dispute.
The police say no missing complaint was filed by Indrani when her sister disappeared.
Indrani and her driver have both been remanded in police custody till August 31.
