A magistrate's court on Monday extended the judicial custody of Peter Mukerjea in the Sheena Bora murder case.
The CBI sought his further custody "to ascertain his version on the point of deceptive reply, if any, during the polygraph test."
The investigating agency informed the court that Peter was subjected to the polygraph and other "scientific" tests over the course of Saturday and Sunday. Reports of the test are expected on Monday evening or by Tuesday.
Furthermore, the CBI had sought details of bank accounts in Singapore and Hong Kong, allegedly in >Sheena's name, through the Interpol and is expecting a reply this evening.
Meanwhile, during the court proceedings, Peter was heard telling the CBI, "Hold me as long as you want but I am not guilty of anything."

His lawyer Mihir Gheewala argued that Peter has nothing to do with the planning and execution of the crime and the CBI was trying to force his link to the case. He said Peter answered all the questions posed to him during the polygraph test, which did not have evidentiary value.
