Mumbai, Nov 25 (PTI) Rahul Mukerjea, son of former media baron Peter Mukerjea, on Friday told a special Central Bureau of Investigation court here his father was not against his relationship with Sheena Bora.
Rahul Mukerjea was deposing before Special CBI judge S P Naik-Nimbalkar as a witness in the Sheena Bora murder case and is currently being cross examined by defence lawyers.

It is true to say my father was keen on the fact I should stand on my own and maintain myself." Rahul Mukerjea further mentioned it was Indrani's family that had objection to his relationship with Sheena Bora.
