"The court recorded Rai's statement under the provisions of Section 164 of Criminal Procedure Code, which unlike a police statement is admissible in court," a CBI official said today.

The official added that the statement will be sent to the trial judge by the Magistrate who will unseal it and give copies to the lawyers.

Earlier, Rai had written to the court and had said that he wanted to 'reveal the truth' about the case.

43-year-old Indrani, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and Rai will be produced in the court tomorrow as their judicial custody expires even as CBI prepares to file the charge sheet against them.

On October 31, the trio was remanded to judicial custody till November 7 which was further extended till November 20.

The CBI had earlier moved an application before the magistrate seeking her voice samples saying that it had got hold of some call recordings which purportedly featured her voice, and therefore a verification was needed.

Indrani, Khanna and Rai were arrested in August on the charge of murdering Sheena and disposing off her body in a Raigad forest in April 2012, about 84 kms from Mumbai.
