Sheena Bora murder: Court asks Indrani to file application after she requests to let her examine Rahul Mukerjea
The judge noted that under section 32 of the Advocate Act 1961, permission for cross-examination in person can be granted but certain other reasons need to do considered.
Indrani Mukerjea is a prime accused in the case related to Sheena's 2012 murder. She is now out on bail.
Peter and Indrani Mukerjea's then driver Shyamwar Rai had turned an approver after initially being an accused in the murder case in 2015.
A Delhi court granted bail to former media baron Peter Mukerjea in the INX Media money laundering case linked to P Chidambaram and his son Karti.
Bora, who was working in Mumbai, was allegedly killed by her mother Indrani Mukerjea, a former media executive, and two others.
The 65-year-old, who is in jail since his arrest by the CBI in 2015, was Sunday admitted to the state-run J J Hospital after he complained of chest pain.
Chidambaram's alleged role came under the scanner of investigating agencies in connection with the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance of Rs 305 crore.
INX Media Ltd, which was owned by Mukerjea, had allegedly paid bribes to get a Foreign Investment Promotion Board approval, which was facilitated by ex finance minister P Chidambaram's son.
The ED has summoned some ex-Finance Ministry officials, who were handling FIPB issues in 2007, in connection with its money laundering probe in the INX media deal case.
Karti Chidambaram was arrested by the CBI on Wednesday on the basis of confessional statements of INX Media Limited directors Peter and Indrani Mukerjea.
The CBI today justified Karti Chidambaram's arrest in the INX Media case in a Delhi court by taking the ground of his non-cooperation and frequent foreign visits.
Mukerjea had demanded access to the personal diary maintained by sub-inspector Ganesh Dalvi, a prosecution witness who was part of the team that arrested prime accused Indrani Mukerjea's driver.
