The Indrani Mukerjea Story: The Buried Truth Releases On Netflix After High Court-Ordered Special Screening

True crime fans have something to be happy about as the highly anticipated The Indrani Mukerjea Story: The Buried Truth has finally dropped on Netflix after a court-ordered delay. Just recently, the Bombay High Court has asked Netflix to stop screening the web series on Indrani Mukerjea, a prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case. The series was scheduled to be released on February 23 and the court has asked it to be stopped.
For the unversed, The Indrani Mukerjea Story: The Buried Truth delves into the disappearance of 25-year-old Sheena Bora and was scheduled to premiere on platform Netflix on February 23.
But the Bombay High Court ordered Netflix to arrange a special screening for CBI officers before it could start streaming for its subscribers to watch. The CBI had objected saying that the web series could affect the investigation of the case, its outcome, and people's perception.
"Why should the CBI not be allowed to see the series? What is the difficulty in sharing the docuseries?" the court had asked. It noted that like an accused, the prosecution and victim in a case have rights, too.
A division bench of Justices Revati Mohite-Dere and Justice Manjusha A Deshpande was hearing a plea by the CBI, which had approached the high court after the special court on Tuesday rejected its plea seeking a stay on the airing of the docuseries.
Justice Dere questioned Netflix as to why the CBI was not allowed to view the series. “She is an accused. It is her depiction. One of the bail conditions is not to tamper evidence. When you sort of interview people in support of your case…What is the difficulty in sharing the docuseries? Whether there is a right of the victim ?” Justice Dere orally questioned.
“Trial is ongoing, we want to know if an accused has a right. We are asking you, before we hear you (Netflix), why cannot the CBI watch the series? Because somewhere down the line, evidence is being recorded and witnesses are being examined,” the judge asked parties to the case.
Streaming platform Netflix assured the High Court that it would not air the documentary The Indrani Mukerjea Story: Buried Truth till February 29. Netflix also said that it would arrange to screen the series for representatives of the central agency and show it to the judges.
“Netflix has no objection to the suggestion that CBI be given an opportunity to view. The hearing is postponed to Thursday. The aforesaid petition will be heard after screening, Kadam says it will not be aired till the next date,” the bench recorded in the order.
The next hearing was scheduled on February 29.
The miniseries has been directed by Uraaz Bahl and Shaana Levy. The cast of The Indrani Mukerjea Story: Buried Truth includes Anurita Jha, Annsh Shekhawat, Vivek Kumar, Mikhail Bora, Sagar Sant, Samaksh Sudi, Moni Shankar, Vidhie Mukerjea, Indrani Mukerjea and Rajdeep Sardesai.
