Sheena Bora murder case: Special CBI court rejects Indrani Mukerjea’s bail plea


Mumbai: The bail plea of Indrani Mukerjea who is imprisoned for her alleged role in her daughter Sheena Bora’s murder, was rejected by a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Mumbai on Thursday.

In December last year, the CBI court had rejected a petition filed by Indrani, who was seeking bail citing deteriorating health. It was her fourth bail plea which has been rejected by the court.

In 2012, Indrani along with Peter Mukerjea and former husband Sanjeev Khanna had allegedly murdered Sheena over a financial dispute. The alleged crime was uncovered three years later in 2015.

Indrani came to the notice of police after her driver, Shyamvar Rai, who was arrested in another case in August 2015, revealed the murder plot.

The police then arrested Indrani, Khanna and the driver for the alleged murder. Peter was put behind bars later for allegedly being involved in the murder. Peter and Indrani are now divorced. (ANI)
