CBI did not get ban on telecast of series on Sheena Bora case

Mumbai: A special court has rejected the CBI's plea seeking to stop the telecast of the documentary series on the mother of Indrani Mukherjee, the main accused in the Sheena Bora murder case.

Special Judge S. P. Naik Nimbalkar said the court has no power to stop the telecast and advised the investigating agency to approach the appropriate forum. The judge said that the government side has not even considered any legal provision for issuing such instructions.

Titled The Indrani Mukherjee Story: The Buried Truth, the series is based on the disappearance of 25-year-old Sheena Bora and is set to premiere on the OTT platform on February 23.

A petition filed by government lawyer Nandode has sought a direction to the CBI court to restrain or restrain the accused and related persons from being shown in the documentary to be released by Netflix. Dada also demanded to stop its telecast on any platform till the hearing of the case is completed.

In April 2012, Sheena was allegedly strangled to death in the car by Indrani, her driver Shyamvar Rai and ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna.

Sheena was Indrani's daughter. It is said that Indrani had hidden this thing for a long time. Sheena's body was cremated in the forest of Raigarh district. This incident came to light in 2015 when driver Rai was arrested. At present, all the accused including Indrani are on bail in this case.
