Mumbai: According to a recent development, Indrani Mukerjea, the prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case sought interim bail citing health reasons. The bail plea came after Mukerjea recovered from COVID-19. Responding to the plea, the prosecution submitting its reply, opposing it. It must be noted that Mukerjea regular bail plea is pending before the Bombay High Court. The woman, who is accused of murdering her daughter in April 2012, also sought an interim bail last year in June. In her previous bail plea, Mukerjea cited the spread of COVID-19 in the prison. One month later, Mukerjea's plea was rejected by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court. While rejecting the bail plea, the CBI court said that Indrani is not a foreign national and hence, belongs to the category of prisoners which is exempted from getting interim bail. The court also stated that a bail could not be granted to Mukerjea solely on the grounds of COVID-19 spread, Hindustan Times reported. In April this year, at least 38 inmates including Indrani Mukerjea, tested positive for COVID-19 at Byculla jail in Mumbai. Earlier, Mukerjea also filed another plea, seeking exemption from wearing the jail uniform. In 2012, Mukerjea, Peter Mukerjea and her former husband Sanjeev Khanna allegedly murdered Sheena Bora over a financial dispute. The alleged murder, however, came to light three years later in 2015.
