MUMBAI, June 28 - A special CBI court today allowed Sheena Bora murder case accused Indrani Mukerjea to approach the police to lodge her complaint that she was beaten up and threatened of sexual assault by Byculla jail officials for joining a protest in the prison over the death of a convict.

Indrani, who has been booked along with around 200 other inmates for rioting in the prison, was today produced in the court, a day after she moved an application alleging she was roughed up by jail officials when the inmates protested the death of 45-year-old woman prisoner Manju Govind Shette.

Special CBI judge JC Jagdale said Indrani be first taken for a medical examination and later to the Nagpada police station in the city to file her complaint.

The court, which is hearing the Sheena murder case, had yesterday directed prison authorities to produce Indrani before it.

Notably, the court�s nod to Indrani to lodge a police complaint came close on the heels of the probe into the death of Manju being handed over to the Crime Branch.

Indrani told the court that she was threatened and assaulted after she said that she would give a statement (in connection with the case) to a magistrate under section 164 CrPC, which unlike a police statement is admissible in court.

Indrani said she had witnessed the prisoner being allegedly assaulted and when inquired about Manju�s health she was told that she was fine but later learnt that she passed away.

She said that after a case was registered in connection with Manju�s death, she came forward as a witness and told the jail officials about that. � PTI
