Sheena murder: Mumbai court refuses to let Indrani cross-examine witness Rahul Mukerjea
A special court here on Tuesday rejected a plea of Indrani Mukerjea, a former media executive and the prime accused in the murder of her daughter Sheena Bora, seeking permission to cross-examine prosecution witness Rahul Mukerjea in person.
Rahul Mukerjea, son of former media baron Peter Mukerjea and fiance of Sheena Bora, is currently deposing before the special CBI court in the ongoing trial in the murder case which came to light seven years ago.
The prime accused had also told the judge that though she does not possess a law degree, she was aware of the process of cross-examination.
However, the special CBI court judge rejected her application, saying ''Mukerjea is not permitted to cross-examine Rahul Mukerjea and further prosecution witnesses, in person.'' Meanwhile, the court granted the central probe agency time till July 20 to prepare the transcript of recorded telephonic conversation of Rahul Mukerjea with other accused in the case.
