"I give my consent for the test," she told the court. CBI had moved an application before the court last week, seeking her voice samples for verification. The premier investigating agency had got hold of some phone records which allegedly feature her voice.
Magistrate RV Adone allowed CBI's application and directed that jail manual be followed while conducting the voice sampling test.
Soon after Ms Mukerjea was produced in court today, the magistrate referred to the CBI plea, to which Indrani asked, "What is it about? This is to match with what?" The court then asked her to wait for the special public prosecutor to arrive. Once special public prosecutor Kavita Patil arrived, she repeated the questions.
"I will give my consent, but I want to know that this (voice sample test) is to match with what?" she asked.
Ms Patil told Indrani Mukerjea that her voice samples are needed to match with with certain call records. When Ms Mukerjea sought to know more, Ms Patil denied, saying it was part of the investigation and cannot be discussed further.
Indrani Mukerjea then gave her consent in writing for conducting voice sample test on her.
43-year-old Indrani Mukerjea, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and her driver Shyamvar Rai have been remanded in judicial custody till November 7.
They have been arrested on the charge of murdering 24-year-old Sheena Bora, daughter of Indrani Mukerjea, and allegedly disposing of her body in a Raigad forest in April 2012.
The case is being probed by CBI after the Maharashtra government had sought its transfer from Mumbai Police to the central investigation agency.
Indrani Mukerjea was recently hospitalised after her platelet count dipped drastically. However, doctors at Mumbai's JJ Hospital had later made it clear that she was not suffering from dengue as suspected.
On October 2, Indrani Mukerjea was taken to JJ Hospital from Byculla womens' prison in an unconscious state, fuelling speculation that she had overdosed on anti-depressant drugs. But the probe by Inspector General (prisons) ruled out the possibility of drug overdose, poisoning or suicide bid.
