Manjula Shetye's death: Crime branch submits 990-page charge sheet”

When Manjula was serving her jail term, she was promoted from an inmate to warden because of her good behaviour and was transferred to Byculla jail, two months back.

Mumbai: After repeated delays in filing the chargesheet in Manjula Shetye murder case, the Mumbai police crime branch is likely to submit a chargesheet at the Metropolitan Magistrate court on Wednesday. The official told this newspaper that sexual assault on the deceased Shetye has been ruled out.

The officer on condition of anonymity said, "The charge sheet have mentioned two important witnesses, Indrani Mukerjea's statement and Vaishali Mudane's statement, who had testified against the jail officer". Her death sparked a prison riot which lasted several hours before being quelled.

The police have pressed charges of murder, destruction of evidence, criminal conspiracy and criminal intimidation against the accused.

Shette died here on June 23 after allegedly being beaten up by jail officials.

The charge sheet runs into around 990 pages and includes statements of around 187 witnesses and Shetye's medical reports. The recordings of CCTV footage will also be submitted with the chargesheet to the court.

The six officials, including jailer Manisha Pokharkar, and constables Bindu Naikade, Waseema Shaikh, Shital Shegaonkar, Surekha Gulve and Aarti Shingne, were arrested on July 1. Some eyewitnesses had alleged in their statements that one of the accused had sexually assaulted Shette with her baton. However, no such injury was detected during autopsy, and no corroborative evidence was found, officers said. "It has been mentioned in the charge sheet", the officer said.

R.S. Aradhey, magistrate of the 37th court, said that he was taking the charge-sheet as presented and it would be registered after being verified by the judicial clerk of the court.
