'I Fear For My Life,' Indrani Mukerjea Tells CBI Court

Indrani Mukerjea is one of the accused in the killing of her daughter Sheena Bora


New Delhi:  Jailed former media entrepreneur Indrani Mukerjea has told a court that she could be in danger. "I fear for my life, I have not given my statement to IG Prisons. I confirm that I have not spoken to anyone," she told a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court.

Her statement comes two weeks after she was hospitalised for an alleged drug overdose. Indrani has been accused of killing Sheena Bora, the 24-year-old daughter she had claimed to the world was her sister, in April 2012. For three years, she told friends and family that Sheena Bora had left for the US.

Indrani, 46, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver were arrested in August 2015. Indrani's husband Peter Mukerjea was arrested in November the same year.

She has been jailed in Mumbai's Byculla prison.

Last week, her personal assistant Kajal Sharma told a court that she forged the signature of Sheena Bora on Indrani's instructions.

Sheena Bora murder case: Earlier this month, Indrani was admitted to hospital in a semi-conscious state after a suspected drug overdose.

In her testimony before a special CBI court, Ms Sharma also said she forged a signature on Sheena Bora's resignation letter after Indrani told her that her daughter was in the US and had no Internet there to submit the resignation.

Earlier this month, Indrani was admitted to hospital in a semi-conscious state after a suspected drug overdose. A private hospital's report had confirmed a significant presence of the anti-depressant drug benzodiazepine.
