Sheena Bora is not alive, CBI tells top court | Latest News India

ByAbraham Thomas, New Delhi

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) instructed the Supreme Court that Sheena Bora is not alive because it opposed bail to former media government Indrani Mukerjea who is going through a trial for the homicide of her 25-year-old daughter in 2012.

Responding to Mukerjea’s petition for bail on a number of grounds of delayed trial, medical causes and suspicion that Sheena Bora is alive, the CBI, in its response filed on Thursday, dismissed the suggestion, saying that it is a “figment of imagination” of the petitioner. The company stated, “The medical, DNA and scientific report established that the recovered dead body is of Sheena Bora. DNA report established that the recovered skull is of Sheena Bora.”

In her attraction filed via advocate Sandeep Singh, the applicant challenged the order of the Bombay excessive court on November 16, 2021, denying her bail. The 50-year-old has been in Byculla jail since her arrest in August 2015.

She instructed the top court that the trial would not finish quickly as 185 out of 253 witnesses stay to be examined.

A bench of justices L Nageswara Rao and BR Gavai posted the matter after two weeks to allow the petitioner to file a response to the CBI affidavit.
