Earlier, the deputy high commission team was denied access and asked to get clearance from the union home ministry.

Officials from the British Deputy High Commission in Mumbai and the British High Commission in New Delhi were not available for comment.

Indrani, the wife of former media tycoon Peter Mukerjea, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and her former driver Shyamvar Rai have been charged with the murder of her daughter Sheena Bora in April 2012.

The trio -- accused of killing Sheena and then dumping her partially burnt body in the forests near Gagode in Raigad district of Maharashtra -- is currently in judicial custody till Sept 21.
