CBI seeks time to file reply on driver�s plea

By The Assam Tribune

MUMBAI, May 17 - The CBI probing the Sheena Bora murder case today sought more time to file its reply on the desire expressed by prime accused Indrani Mukerjea�s former driver Shyamvar Rai to turn approver in the case.

The Special Judge HS Majahan adjourned the case until June 6 after special CBI prosecutor Kavita Patil sought more time.

Rai on May 11 sought to turn approver, saying he wants to �disclose all truths� as he had taken part in the crime.

He had also written a two-page letter to the court seeking pardon. The agency had earlier sought time till today to file its reply.

Rai was the first accused to be arrested in the case in August 2015.

The murder came to light after Rai was picked up in connection with an arms case and later spilled the beans on the crime.

He had last year recorded his confessional statement before a magistrate under section 164 of CrPc. � PTI
