Peter Mukherjea's wife Indrani, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and her former driver Shyamvar Rai will also be brought to the court since their judicial custody expires today.
    
In a fresh twist in the Sheena case, Peter Mukherjea was yesterday arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), hours after it filed a chargesheet in which Indrani, the mother of the victim born from her first marriage, and two others were accused of the crime.
    
A CBI spokesperson had said that Peter's name surfaced during its probe in the case and "he has been arrested".


    
The spokesperson refused to divulge any further details in the case, but sources in the probe agency said he has been arrested for allegedly 'shielding the accused' and 'inconsistencies' in his statements. Peter was placed under arrest after another round of questioning yesterday.
    
Peter, who has been kept in the office of Special Task Force of CBI here, will be produced before the magistrate's court today. The CBI is likely to seek his custody as they want to interrogate him to unravel his role in the murder case.
