Sheena murder: My father is innocent, says Rahul Mukerjea

One-liner: Rahul Mukerjea, son of former media baron Peter Mukerjea, told the special court in Mumbai conducting the trial in the Sheena Bora murder case on Thursday that he still believes that his father is innocent.  

Cross-examined: He was being cross-examined by the main accused Indrani Mukerjea's lawyer Ranjeet Sangle before a special judge for CBI cases S P Naik-Nimbalkar.

Out on bail: Peter Mukerjea, Indrani's former husband, was also arrested in the case. All the accused, including Indrani, are out on bail.

Spilled the beans: Sheena (24), with whom Rahul Mukerjea was in a relationship, was allegedly killed by her mother with the help of co-accused Sanjeev Khanna and her driver Shayamvar Rai in 2012. The murder came to light in 2015 when Rai, arrested in another case, spilled the beans.

What Rahul said: On Thursday,  while responding to a question by advocate Sangle, Rahul said even after Peter Mukerjea's arrest he had consistently told the media that his father is innocent.

Letters to Prez, PM: He also admitted to writing letters to the President of India and the PM stating that his father was innocent. 

Bottom line: As per the CBI, Indrani disapproved of Sheena's relationship with Rahul and also had financial disputes with her.
