Here comes a ‘love angle’ in the most controversial criminal case of 2015. When it came to saving himself, Peter Mukerjea heaped all the blame on Indrani in the Sheena Bora murder case. Even his lawyers showed her as the devil, but now Peter sent a love letter to Indrani for her birthday.

According to sources, Peter sent a dated January 3, where Peter compares himself and his wife to the star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet.

In the letter Peter addressed his wife – “Mumu, my dearest”, and wrote, “Today is the special day in your life and mine too. Therefore, your birthday is a day we have always spent together since we met and this is the first year we’re so close and yet so far! What can I say, other than to wish you a Happy Birthday in the now. Have a pleasant day, as much as you can.”

It was a one-page letter written in black, which says: “Remember that I am thinking of you throughout. You pray that you get through your innocence and get clear of this nightmare in good times. I hope this reaches you and you get to see it so it gives you a moment of joy in all the sadness that everyone is going through, you and me, most of all.”

The love letter continues: “This is just a short note for today as a real birthday special to touch you and reach out to you on your day. A big hug and moooaah to you. I don’t know what else I can do – can’t send you flowers or a cake or something that you would enjoy but this note to you is from the heart and with love from a man to his love and wife.”

“God is great and will see an end to this, and like Romeo and Juliet, we will hopefully see each other soon,” Peter further wrote, finally ending the letter with: “No more emotional stuff. Smile today, no matter what, my love, and you’ll feel better for that. This year brings us more joy and happiness than 2015 did. Lots to look forward to, my treasure. Hugs and love, happy birthday girl! Yours, Pxxxxx.”

However, the interesting part is that just a day after this letter, on January 4, Peter’s lawyers filed first bail application, saying that only Indrani was responsible for her daughter Sheena’s death.
