Indrani, who was an accomplished media executive and socialite, was married to media baron Peter Mukerjea. In 2015, she was arrested for murdering Sheena Bora. After her arrest, Indrani was sent to judicial custody at a women's-only prison in Byculla Jail, Mumbai.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) took over the case and filed charges against Indrani under the Indian Penal Code Sections 302 (murder), 201 (causing disappearance of evidence), 34 (criminal conspiracy), 420 (cheating and forgery), 364 (kidnapping) 120-B (conspiracy).
In January 2022, Indrani Mukerjea submitted a hand-written application before a special court in Mumbai, claiming that Sheena, whom she is accused of killing, is alive. Indrani was granted bail by the Supreme Court in 2022 after being in jail for six-and-a-half years.
