After being charged with the murder of her daughter, Sheena Bora, accused Indrani Mukerjea on Tuesday told the court that she wants to file for divorce from husband and co-accused Peter Mukerjea.

A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court, on Tuesday, charged Indrani Mukerjea, Peter Mukerjea and Indrani's ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna with murder and criminal conspiracy in the sensational Sheena Bora murder case.

The trial will begin on 1 February.

Indrani's daughter Sheena, from her partner Siddharth Das, was murdered on 24 April, 2012 and her body was burnt and disposed of in a forest in Maharashtra's Raigad district.

Indrani's former driver Shyamvar Rai, was arrested in August 2015, and turned approver in the case, submitting a detailed account of the murder in his confessional statement.

Rai alleged that it was Indrani who came up with the murder plan along with ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna. Rai hasn't suggested that Peter Mukerjea had a role to play in the murder.
