Mumbai: Sheena Bora murder accused Indrani Mukerjea on Friday argued for her release on bail citing that she was suffering from an irreversible medical condition that needed proper treatment by a neurosurgeon.

Representing Indrani, her lawyer Tanveer Ahmed argued before the court that her health condition was such that she cannot be treated in jail and required better facility and specialist doctors.


This is Indrani’s fourth bail application on health grounds. A prime accused in the murder of her biological daughter, Sheena Bora, Indrani had personally submitted a handwritten bail application before special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court judge J.C. Jagdale around six months back.

Advocate Ahmed argu-ed before the court that Indrani had suffered a suspected brain stroke in September 2018, and could suffer another stroke anytime.

Warning the court that it would be a lengthy process to take her to a state-run hospital in the event of a stro-ke in jail, Mr Ahmed arg-ued that lack of timely medical intervention could end up having an adverse effect on her health.


“Her medical condition is not improving. Her path is not moving towards a cure. It is moving towards further deterioration,” he said, adding that medical experts had opined that Indrani’s medical condition was irreversible.

Mr Ahmed also pointed out that Indrani’s quarterly medical check-up, as directed by the court while rejecting her previous bail in November 2018, had not been implemented.

He also brought to the notice of the court that the CBI had opposed Indrani’s bail plea in 2018, as one of the witnesses, Rahul Mukerjea, was yet to be examined.

He told the court that non-examination of Rahul could not be a continuous reason to reject her bail application.


According to the CBI, Indrani, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna, and her former driver, Shyamvar Rai, had murdered Sheena Bora in a car in Bandra in April 2012. Later, they burnt her body at a deserted place in Raigad.
