Indrani Mukerjea, one of the three prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case, was admitted to a hospital in Mumbai in an unconscious state on Friday, October 2, 2015. In a relief for the authorities, Mukerjea is responding to treatment, revealed a top official.
Dean of Sir J.J. Hospital, Dr. T.P. Lahane said, "Indrani is responding to treatment and is now in a semi-conscious state, and she may fully recover in at least three days. She is responding to voice commands, asked for water once but remains in a semi-conscious state. She is also on ventilator to help her breathe. We are waiting for the urine report to determine what could be the exact cause of her present condition."
Indrani was rushed to Sir J.J. Hospital around 2 pm on Friday, after she complained of uneasiness and breathing issues. Late Friday night Dr. Lahane said, "Her (Indrani Mukerjea) condition is serious and a series of medical tests are being carried out. We think that she consumed some tablets, we are treating her on that basis."
A senior home department official Satvir Singh said, "Indrani was prescribed to take two pills for epileptic problems, one in morning and one in evening, under the supervision of the jail authorities. However, she apparently hoarded the tablets and took them at one go early on Friday leading to her present condition. The matter would be probed."
