Jailed-media baron Indrani Mukerjea Thursday turned approver in the INX Media corruption case.
Mukerjea, who was granted pardon in the case by the court on July 4, appeared before special judge Arun Bhardwaj. She accepted the conditions put on her.
“I am aware that the court has allowed the application and granted me pardon, subject to the conditions as mentioned in the order,” Indrani told the court.
In case of giving false evidence and not complying with the condition, she would be tried for the offence, the court had said in its order granting her pardon.
She is currently lodged in Byculla jail, Mumbai, in her daughter Sheena Bora’s murder case. Her husband Peter Mukerjea, the company’s founder, is also in jail in the same case. They are facing trial for allegedly conspiring to kill Bora, Indrani’s daughter.
