The Judge then directed the jail superintendent of Byculla jail to transfer the custody of Indrani to the lady officer of the CBI.
Mumbai: A special CBI court Friday allowed the Delhi CBI to take Sheena Bora murder accused, Indrani Mukerjea, to Delhi, as a court in the national capital which is conducting trial in the INX Media case, issued summons in her name.
Meanwhile, the prosecution in the Sheena Bora murder case examined a panch witness before whom co-accused Sanjeev Khanna showed a petrol pump from where petrol was bought to burn Bora’s body.
Special Judge J.C. Jagdale, conducting trial in the 2012 Sheena Bora murder case, in which Indrani, her husband Peter Mukerjea, and ex-husband Khanna are all accused, observed that it was clear from the production warrant that Indrani was required to be present before the court of the special judge in New Delhi on May 23, 2019. The Judge then directed the jail superintendent of Byculla jail to transfer the custody of Indrani to the lady officer of the CBI. Indrani has turned approver in the INX Media case in Delhi. She is currently lodged in the Byculla jail here, and is facing trial in a CBI court for allegedly killing Bora, her daughter.
Meanwhile, special public prosecutor Ejaz Khan examined a panch witness who told the court that Khanna had shown them the petrol pump from where petrol was purchased to burn Bora’s body.
The witness Sushant Sawant told judge Jagdale that Khanna took the police team along with the two panch witnesses (one of them was him) to a petrol pump of Indian Oil at Panvel Road. The name of that pump was Balaji petrol pump.
Readers may recall that apart from Indrani, the name of Karti Chidambaram, son of senior Congress leader P. Chidambaram, had also cropped up in the Rs 305 crore case related to the approval granted by Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) in 2007 for receipt of funds by INX Media.
