Indrani Mukerjea now facing respiratory depression, says Dean of J . Hospital

Although docs claimed that her health condition was improving while they failed to announce her out of danger.


Lahane had earlier stated that Indrani could not regain consciousness and that doctors were trying hard to revive her from her deep slumber. Prison officials, who were tasked to monitor her medication, have been asked to explain how Indrani got hold of tablets more than her dosage.

Indrani was rushed to Sir J.J. Hospital after she complained of uneasiness and breathing issues around 2 p.m. on Friday. Her urine tested positive for Benzodiz, as just informed by Hinduja Hospital. “It is to be ensured that the medicine is consumed immediately by the medical staff. We will look into whether there was a lapse”, Singh said. In the Hospital, Anti Epileptic drugs are to be in control of seizures and also given mood stability. “It is only the anti-depressant that has caused the thing(collapse)”, Lahane told PTI. She was suspected to have consumed a few tablets.

It is suspected that Indrani went into depression after learning about the demise of her mother in Guwahati on Tuesday. Her stomach wash was sent for forensic examination. Lahane, Dean of state-run J.J. Hospital told reporters in Mumbai, adding, “within 48 hours we will discharge her.”We will keep her under observation for the next 24-48 hours“, said Dr. Lahane”.

Acting on the plea, Magistrate R V Adone sought a report from the hospital on her health condition and adjourned the hearing till next week.

Sheena, 24, daughter of Indrani, was allegedly kidnapped from outside National College in Bandra and strangled to death in a vehicle by Indrani, her former second husband Sanjeev Khannaand driver Shyamvar Rai.

Indrani, the wife of former Star India CEO and media tycoon Peter Mukerjea, has been accused of killing her daughter Sheena Bora, besides attempting to eliminate her son Mikhail Bora.

Since September 7, Indrani, Khanna and Rai have been lodged in judicial custody.

The sensational case was initially handled by Mumbai police under the supervision of then police commissioner Rakesh Maria and later transferred to the CBI by the Maharashtra government after allegations of improper investigations.


Last week after receiving a notification from the Central government, the CBI on September 29 registered a First Information Report ( FIR) against the three accused under Sections 120-B, 364, 302, 307, 328, 201, 202, 203 of IPC and Section 3(25) of the Arms Act.
