Mumbai: Sheena Bora murder case accused Indrani Mukerjea, lodged in Byculla jail here, will be interrogated in Manjula Shete Byculla jail murder case, Maharashtra minister Ranjit Patil announced on Friday.
Shetye, 40, was a jail warden serving the last few months of her 14-year jail term for murdering her sister-in-law in 1996. She had complained about some missing ration from the jail food stock in June.
She was allegedly summoned by a woman jailor and beaten up brutally, according to witness statements recorded by the police.
Indrani has been named as an accused in a case of rioting and unlawful assembly inside the jail along with Divya Pahuja, an accused in Haryana gangster Sandeep Gadholi encounter case, and others.
Indrani had earlier told a special CBI court that she was threatened and assaulted after she said that she would give a statement in connection with Shette's death.
