Sheena Bora murder case: Bombay High Court denies bail to Indrani Mukerjea
Bora, 24, was allegedly strangled to death in a car by Mukerjea, her then driver Shyamvar Rai and former husband Sanjeev Khanna in April 2012. The body was burnt in a forest in neighbouring Raigad district
Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Tuesday rejected the bail plea of Indrani Mukerjea, who is the prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case.
Mukerjea's lawyer Sana Khan said they will now move the Supreme Court for bail.
Mukerjea is currently lodged at the Byculla women's prison in Mumbai following her arrest in August 2015.
This was her first attempt to seek bail from the high court on merits of the case.
She had been denied bail on multiple occasions by a special CBI court, which is conducting the trial in the murder case.
Mukerjea is facing trial for allegedly killing her daughter Sheena Bora.
Bora (24) was allegedly strangled to death in a car by Mukerjea, her then driver Shyamvar Rai and former husband Sanjeev Khanna in April 2012. The body was burnt in a forest in neighbouring Raigad district.
Bora was born out of Mukerjea's previous relationship.
Former media baron Peter Mukerjea was also arrested for allegedly being part of the conspiracy. He was granted bail by the high court in February 2020.
His marriage to Indrani Mukerjea ended during the period of incarceration.
A magistrate court here extended the judicial custody of former media baron Peter Mukerjea till 11 January in the Sheena Bora murder case.
A Mumbai Magistrate court on Monday extended the judicial custody of former media baron Peter Mukerjea till 28 December in the Sheena Bora murder case even as he moved an application seeking homemade food in jail on account of his ailments.
The last 72 hours will undoubtedly have taken their toll on the various wings of Indrani Mukerjea’s family. But what do we know about the man at the eye of the storm presently swirling around Indrani’s ‘family’, her husband Peter Mukerjea?
