Earlier, six Byculla women's prison officials, accused of murder of inmate, Shetye have filed their bail pleas at a sessions court in Mumbai.

In the bail pleas, they blamed Sheena Bora murder accused Mukerjea of hatching a conspiracy against them for framing them in the murder case.

The plea also says that Shetye's death was a result of her illness.

Earlier on June 30, a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed in the Bombay High Court seeking Criminal Investigation Department (CID) inquiry in the murder case of Shetye. (With ANI inputs)
