MUMBAI, Sept 21 - A local court today extended the judicial custody of key accused Indrani Mukherjea, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyam Rai till October 5 in connection with the Sheena Bora murder case.
The trio, whose judicial custody ended today, were produced before a Bandra Metropolitan Magistrate Court via video-conferencing. All the three accused, who are lodged in various jails in the city, could not be produced physically due to security reasons.
On September 7, a fortnight after their arrest and prolonged interrogation, the court had remanded Indrani and her driver Shyam Rai to judicial custody till September 21, while Khanna was taken to Kolkata, where he was produced in a court there.
On September 8, Khanna, former husband of Indrani, too was remanded in judicial custody after their mandatory period of 14-day police custody ended a day before.
Indrani, Khanna and Rai have been arrested on the charge of murdering Sheena and disposing of her body in a Raigad forest in April 2012. � PTI
