Sheena case: CBI opposes Indrani’s bail application
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday filed its reply in a local court, opposing the application filed by Indrani Mukerjea – prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case, seeking bail on medical grounds.
Indrani’s application, filed on February 5, says her health was deteriorating. The CBI said she was being provided with medical treatment at the Byculla women’s prison here where she is lodged. She was being given nutritious food from the jail canteen and as per the medical reports, her condition was good, it said.
Indrani’s application claimed that she was suffering from frequent blackouts. She had developed ‘chronic small vessels ischemic changes’ and as a result the supply of oxygen to the brain may get interrupted, leading to brain stroke which could be life-threatening, it said.
It added that when she fell unconscious in jail last October, it took over six hours for the treatment to start. Indrani, her husband and former media baron Peter Mukerjea, ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna, and her former driver Shyam Rai have been arrested in the Sheena Bora murder case.
