"Complete the investigation by December 17 and on that day I will open the sealed packets of the statements and give it to the accused," special CBI judge HS Mahajan told the Central investigative agency.
    
On Thursday, Indrani had moved an application through her lawyer Gunjan Mangla, seeking statements of witnesses recorded before the magistrate's court. However, special public prosecutor Kavita Patil had opposed Indrani's application and said it was a case of 'larger conspiracy' and that the CBI is carrying out further investigation, which she said was at a 'crucial stage'.
    
Patil also said that it would be harmful and damaging to disclose the statements of witnesses to the accused at this stage. Meanwhile, the court also allowed CBI's application seeking permission to once again interrogate Indrani, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and her driver Shyamvar Rai.
