Sheena Bora murder case: Bail hearing for Indrani Mukherjee adjourned till 31 March

Mumbai: A special CBI court on Wednesday adjourned the hearing on the bail application of Indrani Mukerjea, prime accused in the sensational Sheena Bora murder case, till 31 March.

43-year-old Indrani had moved an application last month seeking bail on medical grounds, saying that she was suffering from frequent "blackouts".

When the matter came up for hearing on Wednesday, her lawyer Mahesh Jethmalani argued that the statement of eight doctors panel submitted on 21-22 February, was as per the medical report of January and not her "subsequent deteriorating condition".

He stated that Indrani's problems were not getting resolved which is a cause of concern and appealed for examination of her latest health condition.

Jethmalani stated that they don't dispute anything and have no grievances against any report and want a physician, neurologist and cardiologist to examine her.

Contesting Jethmalani, the prosecution presented some of her recent medical reports in the court and said she was monitored 24x7.

Following the arguments, Judge H S Mahajan, adjourned the hearing till March 31.

In her 17-page bail plea, the former media executive said that her medical condition is deteriorating and she has lost 18 kilograms in 4 months. Mukerjea had also said that she wants to live in a stress-free environment.

Last year, on November 19, Peter Mukerjea, husband of Indrani, was also arrested for his alleged role in the murder case. He has been kept at the high-security Arthur Road Jail here where Khanna and Rai are also lodged.

24-year-old Sheena, daughter of Indrani from an earlier relationship, was allegedly strangled in a car and her
body burnt and dumped in a forest in Raigad, about 84 kms from here in April 2012.

CBI, while maintaining that financial transaction was the motive behind the murder of Sheena, had earlier said that Peter, during his interrogation, disclosed investments of crores of rupees made by him and Indrani and is expecting information from Interpol on the details of an account opened by Indrani in a bank in Hong Kong.
