Following the application filed by her lawyer in CBI Special Court, the court has ordered prison authorities to present Indrani before it.

Earlier, Indrani, along with several other women, were booked for instigating riots in Byculla jail. The prisoners of the Byculla jail were agitated after a 45-year-old woman inmate was allegedly beaten to death on Friday by jail officials after she was caught stealing eggs.

Indrani, who is in prison on charges of murdering her daughter Sheena Bora, was among 200 women accused by jail officials of instigating a riot.

A picture reportedly shows Mukherjea standing on the jail's rooftop with other inmates. Jail authorities have accused her of being one of the prisoners instigating a revolt.
