No bail for Indrani, but can take treatment at private hospital
A special CBI court on Friday rejected the bail plea of Indrani Mukerjea, the prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case. She had cited her ailing health as a ground for bail. “Indrani can take private treatment in private hospitals with private doctor,” said judge HS Mahajan.
The court said it had given directions regarding her diet too, and every quarter a panel of doctors would check her and the report would be sent directly to the court. Indrani’s bail application said she was suffering from ‘chronic small vessels inchemic changes’, and as a result the supply of oxygen to the brain may stop, leading to a life threatening brain stroke.
She suffered frequent blackouts due to her condition, it said, adding that it took around 45 to 60 minutes to reach hospital from the Byculla women’s prison where she is lodged.
