MUMBAI -- Former media honcho Peter Mukerjea, an accused in the Sheena Bora murder case, moved a fresh bail plea before the special CBI court calling the allegations levelled against him in the case as 'false, baseless and unbelievable' and also putting the onus on his wife Indrani, saying that she was highly ambitious and was willing to go to any lengths for that.

Peter's advocate Kushal Mor filed the fresh bail application on Wednesday in which the former media honcho claimed that his wife, Indrani, was highly ambitious and was willing to go to any lengths for that.

"She was highly ambitious and was willing to sacrifice and give up her own children to achieve her ambitions. She was extremely controlling by nature and had a very strong grip on her employees and people who worked for her," Peter said.

In one portion of bail application it is said that Indrwas very calculative and even resorted to subterfuge in the months of March and April 2012 while tricking Sheena into believing that Indrani was ready and willing to forget the past acrimony and anger and turn into a friend and well-wisher of Sheena, in order to lure Sheena into her plan of murdering her.

In the bail application, Peter has claimed it was not him, but Indrani, who objected to Rahul and Sheena's relationship. He had also denied the allegation of being informed by Indrani about the murder and said that the said calls were made by Indrani to her daughter, Vidhie.

The media honcho was arrested on November 19 for his alleged role in the murder conspiracy in which his wife Indrani Mukerjea is the prime accused.

The 59-year-old was questioned by the CBI for two weeks after which he was remanded in judicial custody and sent to the Arthur Road Jail.
