Bombay High Court Scraps CBI Plea to Halt Release of ‘The Indrani Mukerjea Story: Buried Truth’

Mumbai: The Bombay High Court dismissed the petition of the CBI seeking to halt the release of the Netflix docu-series, ‘The Indrani Mukerjea Story: Buried Truth’.

The docu-series based on the disappearance of Indrani Mukerjea’s daughter Sheena Bora was to premiere on Netflix on February 23.

The CBI filed a petition in the Bombay High Court to put a stay on the release of the series till the end of the trial in the case. Netflix told the Bombay High Court that it would not release the series till February 29.

On February 20, a special court in Mumbai shelved a CBI plea seeking a stay on the Netflix documentary series. After that, the CBI moved the Bombay High Court seeking a stay on the release of the series.

Senior counsel Ravi Kadam, appearing for Netflix, informed the court that five witnesses have been interviewed in the series, including Indrani’s son Mikhail (Sheena’s brother) and Vidhie Mukerjea, Indrani’s daughter with Peter Mukerjea. Statements of three witnesses from these five are yet to be recorded by the trial court.
