Mumbai: A local court in Mumbai has extended the judicial custody of Indrani Mukherjee and two accused in the Sheena Bora murder case till November 20 after her week long remanded ended on Saturday.
“The judicial custody of Mukerjee, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyam Rai is extended till November 20,” ordered Magistrate RV Adone.
The court also allowed CBI to interrogate Mukerjee and Khanna till November 17. Earlier, the court had granted permission to quiz all the three accused in jail till November 7
Public Prosecutor Kavita Patil moved an application and told the court that certain documents need to be “confronted” and (Indrani’s) voice samples are yet to be taken. Mukerjee, on November 3, had given her consent for voice sample test to be conducted on her.
The CBI had earlier moved an application before the magistrate seeking her voice samples saying that it had got hold of some call recordings which purportedly featured her voice, and therefore a verification was needed.
On October 31, the trio was remanded to judicial custody till November 7.
Mukerjea, Khanna and Rai were arrested in August on the charge of murdering 24-year-old Sheena and disposing off her body in a Raigad forest in April 2012, about 84 kms from Mumbai.
Sheena was allegedly strangled in a car, then her body was burnt before being dumped in the forest.
