CBI Gets the Go Ahead for Lie Detector Test on Peter Mukerjea

New Delhi, Nov 28: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday was given the permission to conduct lie-detector test on former media baron Peter Mukerjea after he was found to be evasive. On Friday, Peter was grilled for 5 hours by the CBI to ascertain whether funds allegedly siphoned off from the media house founded by him and Indrani Mukerjea were parked in an overseas account of Sheena Bora which resulted in a dispute between Indrani and her daughter.

The sources said that the test is needed to evaluate whether his revelations are true or he is misleading the agency.

A special court on Friday gave its nod to the CBI to conduct the test on Peter, which reportedly performed at the CBI headquarters in New Delhi. 

Peter, 59, was arrested on November 19 from his home in Mumbai's Worli area and has been in CBI custody since then.
