India Tycoon Charged With Murder

India Tycoon Charged With Murder

An Indian media tycoon has been formally charged with the murder of his stepdaughter, police said. Peter Mukerjea, the former CEO of Rupert Murdoch’s Star India network, was arrested in November. He told Indian media that he stood by his earlier statement that he had nothing to do with her death, BBC reported. The murder of Sheena Bora, first thought to be Mukerjea’s sister-in-law but later found to be his stepdaughter, has gripped India. Police had earlier named Indrani Mukerjea, Bora’s mother, as the main suspect in the case. They have also arrested her first husband as a co-conspirator in the murder, as well as her former driver who is listed as an accomplice. Mukerjea is accused of plotting along with his wife to kill Bora in 2009. The early coverage of the issue had attracted criticism, with politician Shashi Tharoor calling it “breathless and hysterical”. Speculation grew after Mumbai’s police commissioner Rakesh Maria, who was personally investigating the case, was removed from his position.
