Citing “threat” to her life, Indrani had applied for bail in August. CBI court judge Judge J C Jagdale, however, rejected her plea.
The judge said that Indrani would be safer inside the prison and her claims of ill-health which she mentioned in her petition were exaggerated. In her bail plea, Indrani had cited an incident in April when she had to be admitted to a hospital.
The court took note of the CBI submission that Indrani is kept in a secure cell as the prison premises are well guarded round-the-clock.
Sheena Bora was allegedly killed on April 24, 2012. The crime was revealed by Indrani’s driver Shyamvar Rai, when he was arrested in another case in August 2015.
Rai, Indrani and her former husband Sanjeev Khanna were arrested for alleged murder of Sheena. Her current husband Peter Mukerjea was arrested for allegedly being part of the murder conspiracy.
