MUMBAI, June 27 - Sheena Bora murder case accused Indrani Mukerjea, booked along with other inmates in a women�s prison for rioting sparked by the death of a convict, today moved a court alleging she was beaten up by the jail officials and threatened with sexual assault.

Taking note of her complaint, a CBI court, which is hearing the Sheena murder case, directed the prison authorities to produce Indrani before it tomorrow.

In another development, police said that Manju Govind Shette, whose death sparked the protests in the prison, was allegedly tortured and a stick was inserted in her private parts.

Manju, 45, died at the government-run JJ Hospital on Friday night after allegedly being beaten up by a woman official of the jail on June 23.

�These allegations are part of the FIR filed against the jail staff. We are probing the matter,� Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone-3), Akhilesh Singh told PTI.

The Nagpada police, investigating the case, have filed an offence of murder against the jail staff. �We are seeking information from eyewitnesses and other inmates in this connection,� a police official said.

Gunjan Mangla, the lawyer of Indrani, filed an application in the court saying when she went to meet the media executive she told her that she was beaten up by the jail officials after the death of the woman prisoner.

�She showed me her bruise marks and injuries which were very prominent on her hands, legs and head,� the lawyer claimed in the application.

Gunjan said Indrani also said that she was verbally abused by jail officials and the superintendent and was threatened with sexual assault for protesting against the death in jail.

Following Manju�s death, the enraged inmates rose in protest on Saturday, some of them went up to the prison�s terrace while others made a bonfire of newspapers and documents inside the premises to express their anger. � PTI
