He was questioned for nearly 12 hours till late last night in connection with the case. "Mukerjea is likely to be called again at the Khar Police Station today as we are trying to corroborate his statement with that of Indrani, with whom he co-founded INX Media," a Mumbai Police official said.

Indrani was arrested on August 25 for the alleged murder of her daughter Sheena. Meanwhile, the Forensic Science Laboratory at Kalina here has begun the process of analysing the samples of Indrani and skeletal remains found in Raigad district to match the DNA and determine if the body was that of Sheena.

Yesterday, police carried out a search at Peter's flat in Worli and took away some documents and a laptop. The same set of questions given to Peter was also given to Indrani, who was brought in from the Bandra Police lock-up and made to sit in an adjoining room.

Some of the questions posed to Peter pertained to his financial transactions, especially his investments, his share in various companies, and how much money he had given to Indrani, son Rahul, step-daughter Sheena, and younger step-daughter Vidhie, who is Indrani's daughter from her previous marriage.
