A Special CBI court on Thursday granted bail to Indrani Mukherjea on Rs 2 lakh surety. Clauses applicable to Peter Mukherjea will reportedly be applicable to Indrani as well.
According to ANI, the Court stated, "Keeping in view that the accused (Indrani Mukherjea) is ready to furnish cash bail provisionally, she will be released after furnishing the cash bail of Rs 2 lakhs. Time to furnish surety is granted for two weeks from today."
The Supreme Court on Wednesday granted bail to Mukerjea. A three-judge bench headed by Justice L Nageswara Rao said the trial is not going to be completed anytime soon.
"The allegation made against the petitioner is that she planned the murder in view of the live in relationship of her daughter with Rahul Mukerjea, who was the son of Peter Mukerjea and his earlier wife," the bench said.
Bora (24) was allegedly strangled to death in a car by Indrani Mukerjea, her then driver Shyamvar Rai and former husband Sanjeev Khanna in April 2012. The body was burnt in a forest in neighbouring Raigad district.
Bora was Indrani's daughter from her previous relationship.
Former media baron Peter Mukerjea was also arrested for allegedly being part of the conspiracy. He was granted bail by the high court in February 2020. His marriage to Indrani Mukerjea ended during the period of incarceration.
