The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI)  filed a request for a stay on a documentary series about Indrani Mukerjea, the main suspect in the Sheena Bora murder case, with a special court in Mumbai on Saturday. The documentary series named ‘The Indrani Mukerjea Story: The Buried Truth’ explores the mystery behind the 25-year-old Bora’s disappearance and is set to launch on Netflix on February 23.

The CBI requested the court “to issue directions to accused and other concerned for staying/stopping the featuring of the accused persons and the persons connected with the case in the documentary by Netflix and its broadcasting on any platform till the conclusion of the ongoing trial” in an application submitted through public prosecutor CJ Nandode.

Notices to respond to the application were sent to Netflix Entertainment Services India and other parties by CBI Special Judge SP Naik-Nimbalkar.

In April 2012, Bora (24 years old) was allegedly strangled to death in a car by her former husband Sanjeev Khanna, her driver Shyamvar Rai, and Indrani Mukerjea.

Bora was the daughter of Indrani’s ex-partner. Her burned body was discovered in a nearby forest in the Raigad district.

In 2015, Bora’s murder became public knowledge because driver Shyamvar Rai disclosed the details of the incident after being arrested for another crime.

After being detained in August 2015, Indrani was granted bail in May 2022.

In this case, Rai, Khanna, and Peter Mukerjea are also free on bond.
