Apart from Sheena’s mother Indrani, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and her former driver Shyamvar Rai were produced by the Central Bureau of Investigation before Magistrate N.B. Shinde, who granted the plea for further extension of judicial custody for the accused trio as the agency needed to interrogate them in jail.

Indrani’s lawyer Gunjan Mangala argued that although her client’s medical condition was not proper, she had cooperated with the investigators and urged proper treatment for her.

To this, the magistrate directed the CBI to first get a fitness report from the medical authorities concerned before interrogating her in prison and asked Mangala to get her client’s (Indrani’s) consent for conducting voice sample tests.

The CBI seeks to verify Indrani’s voice samples with some telephone call records which purportedly feature her voice and the agency has obtained.

The accused trio has been arrested in August and had been subsequently in police and judicial custody since August, in connection with the murder of Sheena Bora in April 2012 and then dumping her partly-burnt body in the forests in Raigad.
