Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Indrani Mukerjea, prime accused in the Bora murder case, has moved a special here for bail, citing ill-health and alleged threat to her life as the reasons.

The application was filed last week, and the CBI is likely to file its reply, opposing the plea, by Monday.

Indrani, lodged in here, in her application mentioned two occasions when she was hospitalised -- once for suspected drug overdose and again, in April, when she complained of difficulty in breathing.

She claimed that someone inside the jail might have tried to poison her.

Indrani, arrested in August 2015, has not got regular in the case so far. In December 2016, the court had allowed her to attend the last rites of her father in police escort.

She is facing trial for allegedly killing her daughter on April 24, 2012. Her husband and former Peter and former husband are co-accused in the case.

The trial in the case began last year and over 10 witnesses have deposed so far.

Today, Indrani's cross-examined her son

told the court that he had last met sometime in December 2011, after which they had only remained in touch through chats and phone.

His cross-examination is likely to continue on Monday.
