CBI court rejects Indrani Mukerjea’s bail plea to perform her father’s last rites

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Dec. 22 : A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court on Thursday rejected former media baron Peter Mukerjea's wife Indrani's interim bail plea to perform her father's last rites in Guwahati.

The court has allowed Indrani to perform the last rites in Mumbai, with police escorting her and has also directed her to refrain from talking to the media during her visit.

Indrani, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyamwar Rai had allegedly strangled Sheena Bora, Indrani's daughter from an earlier relationship, inside a car in April 2012.

The trio was arrested in August last year, while Peter was arrested in November last year. Sheena's body was found in a forest in Raigad. The crime, which came to light in August last year, is allegedly linked to certain financial dealings.
