On Wednesday, the Supreme Court granted bail to former media executive Indrani Mukerjea, who is facing trial for the murder of her 25-year-old daughter Sheena Bora in 2012.

They argued that she had been incarcerated for six-and-a-half years. Sixty-eight witnesses were examined; of 237 prosecution witnesses, 185 remain to be explored.

The 50-year-old told the top court that the trial would not end soon as 185 out of 253 witnesses in the case remain to be examined. Moreover, the trial judge hearing her case was on leave from June 7, 2021, till May 4, 2022, further delaying the trial.

The SC bench of justices L Nageswara Rao and Bhushan Gavai observed that six and a half years was a long time, with a trial stuck with almost 200 witnesses still to be examined.

The prosecution, led by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), had opposed bail and informed the court that the trial would not take long. The problem will be giving up on 50% of the remaining witnesses.

Her counsel said the special trial court had been vacant since June 7, 2021. Her being a woman incarcerated for so long was also argued and considered by the apex court.

Senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, who appeared for Indrani and advocated for Sandeep Singh, told the court that while releasing Peter on bail, the trial judge directed him to deposit his passport (as he is a UK national) intimate the special CBI court conducting the trial for traveling abroad.

Responding to her bail plea, the CBI had said, “The petitioner has committed the heinous act of planning and killing her daughter Sheena Bora. Such a gruesome act deserves no leniency from this court. The applicant committed a grave offense, and the same cannot be treated as an ordinary case.”

Important witnesses are yet to be examined, and the applicant’s release will likely hamper further trial prosecution.
