CBI sought a stay on streaming the Netflix docu-series – The Indrani Mukherjea Story; Hidden Truths. However High Court struck down the plea. The series is now
trending on the OTT platform

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) recently made headlines by seeking a stay on the streaming of the documentary series titled “The Indrani Mukherjea Story: Hidden Truths.” This four-part series delves into the notorious case of Sheena Bora, allegedly murdered by her sister, who was later revealed to be her mother, Indrani Mukherjea. Peter Mukherjea, Indrani’s third husband, and a prominent figure in the media industry, also plays a significant role in the case.

The murder of Sheena Bora in 2012 shocked the nation, and the subsequent arrest of Indrani Mukherjea in 2015 kept the case in the spotlight. However, when Netflix released the documentary series on February 23, 2024, it reignited public interest and drew the attention of the CBI.

The series explores the intricate details of the case, including the events leading up to Sheena’s disappearance in 2012, the discovery of her body in 2015, and the subsequent arrest of Indrani Mukherjea, her driver Shyamvar Rai, and former husband Sanjeev Khanna on charges of murder. It also sheds light on the complexities surrounding the case, such as the motive behind the murder and the alleged involvement of various individuals.

One of the key reasons behind the CBI’s move to seek a stay on the streaming of the series was its concern over the potential impact on the ongoing trial. The agency argued that the documentary could influence the investigation, the outcome of the trial, and public perception of the case. Moreover, the CBI criticized the makers of the series for not consulting them before its release.

The documentary includes interviews with crucial witnesses, including Mikhail (Sheena’s brother), Vidhie Mukerjea (Indrani’s daughter), and Rahul (Sheena’s boyfriend and Peter’s son). These interviews, along with other aspects of the series, raised apprehensions within the CBI regarding its potential interference with the judicial process.

Furthermore, the CBI expressed concerns about the inclusion of details not previously disclosed and the possibility of the series affecting witness testimonies, not to mention influencing public perception. Despite these concerns, on February 29, the High Court dismissed the CBI’s petition and allowed Netflix to stream the series, citing that the content was already in the public domain.

The documentary, while providing a comprehensive overview of the case, raises more questions than answers. It revisits the timeline of events, presents interviews, and highlights various perspectives, leaving the audience with a deeper understanding of the complexities involved. However, it refrains from presenting any new revelations or crossing legal boundaries.

Indrani Mukherjea, who maintains her innocence and who now insists that Sheena is still alive, dismisses the accusations against her as ludicrous. However, skeptics argue that her claims are merely wishful thinking and that the evidence points to her involvement in the crime. As the prosecution continues to submit new evidences. Indrani’s defense strikes them out and she calls them mere allegations with no corroboration.

Meanwhile on Netflix, the OTT platform “The Indrani Mukherjea Story: Hidden Truths” serves as a captivating exploration of a high-profile case, it also underscores the challenges and intricacies of the Indian judicial system. As the trial continues, the quest for justice for Sheena Bora remains ongoing, with the documentary series serving as a reminder of the complexities surrounding her tragic death – a refresher for those who followed the case in the media over the years and a peek into it for the uninitiated.

The docu-series which is now available and is on the top shows of Netflix is well made and can give any thriller a run for its money. Evidently the makers approached all the four accused in the case – however it was only Indrani, who agreed to speak for the camera – and that makes this series more impactful, and the editing keeps it slick and engaging, even as the case remains in court awaiting closure.

And what ever she may be as would be revealed once the case is resolved – Indrani Mukherjea is one hell of a strong woman, as she continues her legal battle.
