Backstory: Mukerjea killed her daughter in April 2012
Mukerjea, estranged wife of Peter Mukerjea, ex-Indian television executive, is accused of killing her 24-year-old daughter Sheena in April 2012. She was helped by others and financial dispute was one of the reasons behind it, according to the CBI. The murder came to light in August 2015 after Mukerjea's former driver, arrested for possession of a firearm, told police about it during his interrogation.Share this timeline
