Just a few days after sending a love letter to wife, there is a media report that former media baron Peter Mukerjea has been considering to seek a divorce from his wife Indrani Mukerjea since January this year.
According to a report in TOI, Peter’s advocate Mihir Gheewala told the daily that he had “since the beginning of this year conveyed to me the marriage had ended and he was keen to get a divorce, but initiation of the process has been deferred since his bail plea is pending”.
On asking about the letter, Peter recently sent to her wife, Peter’s other counsel Aabad Ponda said that this letter was his first response to Indrani’s 40 letters sent to him till December.
He further said that Indrani had been repeatedly writing and expressing both of their innocence and is also hoping this year would be a good one. In the reply, Peter responded that he hoped so too.
Indrani was arrested last August for the murder of her daughter Sheena Bora. She was arrested along with her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyamwar Rai, while Peter was made co-accused only in November.
Currently, both Indrani and Peter are in jail. Peter at Arthur Road, while she at the Byculla women’s jails.
Peter’s bail hearing will continue on Thursday.
