Former television head honcho Peter Mukerjea is ready to divorce his wife of 15 years Indrani Mukerjea. Indrani had last month told the special CBI court in Mumbai that she wanted to file for divorce. The court had told her that since this was her personal issue she did not need permission from court to do so.Peter came to court on Saturday in a crisp white shirt and a smile and was seen sporting a black smear on his forehead. When asked about it, he said that someone had been to Pandharpur and these were the blessings he had received. During the hearing on Saturday his son Rabin too was present with a friend.Peter’s family said that he has in a way “forgiven” Indrani but he “would not be able to spend the rest of his life with her” after what he has been through in the last one year or so. The two were married in 2002 and it was the second marriage for both of them. However remembering the fact that Peter had written a letter to Indrani exactly a year ago in jail on her birthday stating, “God is great and will see an end to this, and like Romeo and Juliet, we will hopefully see each other soon,” the family said that it is all over from his end now. Peter’s letter to Indrani was sent around the same time.Interestingly the court was also abuzz with the two fighting like cats and dogs when they were brought together by the police from their respective jails. Peter, along with Indrani’s ex-husband and co-accused in the case, Sanjeev Khanna, are languishing in Arthur Road Jail while Indrani is put up in Byculla Jail. Sometimes all three are picked up in the same vehicle by police officials and brought to court. During the last hearing that is on February 1, the first time that the three met in the vehicle after Indrani’s announcement that she wanted a divorce, the two fought so much that policemen had to intervene. When Khanna was asked about the incident, he gave a know it all smile but gestured that his lips were sealed.advertisementRecently, Peter’s niece got married in Bengaluru and he had sought permission to attend the ceremonies there. CBI had sighted difficulties regarding his security and the court had thus ordered that he be allowed to attend it through video conferencing, however in spite of court’s order for jail authorities to arrange for video conferencing it could not be done so. The Mukerjea family did seem upset about it as they were looking forward to Peter giving blessings to his niece on that day.
