SC Grants bail to Indrani Mukherjee in Sheena Bora Murder case

Indrani Mukherjee

The Supreme Court on Wednesday granted bail to Indrani Mukherjee in the Sheena Bora murder case after 6.5 years in custody.

The apex court granted her considering the fact that she has been under custody for 6.5 years, and that the trial is not likely to be complete soon. A bench comprising Justices L Nageswara Rao and BR Gavai passed the order in a special leave petition filed against an order passed by the Bombay High Court in November 2021 rejecting her bail plea.

The Supreme Court bench also noted that the other accused in the case, Peter Mukherjea is already on bail since February 2020. The court allowed Indrani to be released on bail subject to all those conditions on which Peter Mukherjea was granted bail.

It was in 2015, that Indrani Mukerjea was arrested in connection with the kidnapping and murder of her daughter Sheena Bora.

Sheena Bora who was working as an executive working for Mumbai Metro One (Reliance Infrastructure) in Mumbai went missing on 24 April 2012. In April 2012, a case was filed with the Mumbai Police alleging kidnapping and murder of Sheena Bora.

In 2015, the CBI took up the investigation and Indrani Mukherjee along with her husband Peter Mukerjea was arrested.

Indran’s driver had confessed to having murdered Sheena Bora along with Indrani Mukerjea and Indrani’s second husband Sanjeev Khanna after being arrested.

Mukerjea’s husband Peter Mukerjea and Sanjeev Khanna are the co-accused in the case. However, Peter was granted bail in March 2020.

Mukerjea had created a sensation in December last year by sending a letter to the CBI claiming that her daughter Sheena Bora was alive and in Kashmir. 

She informed the CBI that she met a woman in Byculla Women’s Jail who told her that she met her daughter in Kashmir and urged the agency to track her.
