GUWAHATI: Indrani Mukerjea, the accused in the Sheena Bora murder case, will be filing an application in a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Mumbai, stating that the central agency be directed to record the statement of a Byculla jail inmate who claimed that Sheena Bora is in Kashmir.
Mukerjea WHO has been behind bars since 2015, when she was arrested in the murder case, said that she met a woman government officer who was arrested recently and lodged in the same prison. According to Mukerjea, she and the officer met behind the prison walls and interacted on November 25.
The woman officer inmate apparently told Mukherjea that in July this year, about four months before the conversation, the officer met Sheena during a vacation in Srinagar.
On hearing this, Mukerjea shot off a letter to the CBI director on November 27 asking them to "take the necessary steps."
However, in spite of the fact that about a fortnight has gone by, CBI has not responded to Indrani's letter.
Mukerjea's lawyer Sana Raees Khan said she is likely to move an application in the special CBI court on the next date and would will request the court to record the statement of the woman officer who has said that she met Sheena in Kashmir.
"This is a vital piece of information and this will certainly change the entire scenario. Indrani has been behind bars for the last more than six years for the death of a girl who is now alive. That is what is being claimed now. This is a vital piece of information now and it will help the case," she added.
