CBI opposes Indrani's bail plea, says filed with ulterior motive

Stating that there is a great possibility that Indrani Mukerjea may not present herself for trial, the CBI strongly opposed her bail plea, which she had sought permission to argue on her own.

Indrani had filed her bail plea on medical grounds claiming that it is highly probable she might suffer a major stroke, that her blood pressure is not stable and that the stress of confinement is further aggravating her health situation.

Replying to her grounds, the CBI which did not oppose her arguing her own plea, said that the bail application is without merits and filed to delay trial. Also, that her bail applications have been rejected twice before, after being filed citing similar grounds and circumstances.

Indrani had stated in her bail plea that there is a lack of facilities in the Byculla prison for medical aid and that there is lengthy paperwork and procedures involved for being taken to JJ Hospital for treatment, where prisoners are taken. She had narrated how a previous appointment in the state-run hospital for MRI scan had got delayed due to procedures and the escort party turning up late. The CBI reply stated that the JJ Hospital and jail authorities are giving the best treatment, promptly, whenever the situations arose. The CBI also suggested that Indrani be examined by a medical board of the hospital or a doctor from AIIMS for proper opinion.

The agency stated that as Indrani's daughter Vidhie is in the UK and Indrani has filed a divorce petition to seek separation from her husband and co-accused Peter Mukerjea, there would be no family to look after her once she is released on bail.

Stating that the bail application is filed with ulterior motives, the agency sought that it be rejected. The arguments on the bail applications are scheduled for October 16.
