Sheena Bora murder case: SC grants bail to Indrani Mukerjea

A three-judge bench headed by Justice L Nageswara Rao said the trial is not going to be completed anytime soon.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday granted bail to Indrani Mukerjea in the Sheena Bora murder case after she had undergone 6.5 years in custody.

The Court also noted that the other accused in the case, Peter Mukherjea is already on bail since February 2020. The court allowed Indrani to be released on bail subject to all those conditions on which Peter Mukherjea was granted bail.

A three-judge bench headed by Justice L Nageswara Rao said the trial is not going to be completed anytime soon.

Indrani Mukerjea had moved her bail plea to the Supreme Court in February after the CBI court had denied her bail on multiple occasions.

In March, the CBI had opposed her bail plea in the Supreme Court as Indrani Mukerjea is accused of committing the heinous act of planning and killing her own daughter.

Mukerjea is facing trial for allegedly killing her daughter Sheena Bora on April 24, 2012. She was arrested by Khar police on August 25, 2015, and has been lodged at the Byculla Jail since September 2015.

Bora (24) was allegedly strangled to death in a car by Indrani 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.
