INX Media Case: Peter Mukerjea sent to CBI custody till 31st March
Delhi’s Patiala House court sends Peter Mukerjea to CBI custody till 31st March in connection with the #INXMediaCase, as per reports.
Former media baron Peter Mukerjea was produced in Delhi’s Patiala House Court in connection with the INX media corruption case on Monday.
Earlier, on Sunday, CBI officials had taken Mukerjea, who has been lodged in the Arthur Road jail in the Sheena Bora murder case, to New Delhi for interrogation in the INX media case, which also involves Karti.
Previously, Karti was taken to the Byculla prison and confronted with Indrani Mukerjea as part of the CBI’s probe into the matter in March. An official had said that Karti and Indrani were brought face-to-face and questioned by a CBI team for about four hours.
On 15 May, 2017, the CBI had registered an FIR alleging irregularities in Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance to INX Media for receiving overseas funds to the tune of Rs 305 crore in 2007 when Karti’s father was the Union finance minister.
