On April 4, a special CBI court rejected the bail plea filed by Peter Mukerjea. 

" We are seeking bail on the medical grounds. We argued in the court that after the bypass surgery, sending him back to the jail would be dangerous as he would be prone to infections," Advocate Shivkant Shivade had told ANI over the phone.  

Special CBI judge JC Jagdale did not accept the arguments and turned down the plea. On March 17, Mukerjea was admitted to the JJ hospital after he complained of chest pain.
