Mumbai | Former media magnate Indrani Mukerjea, prime accused in the sensational Sheena Bora murder case, is in a semi conscious state and will have to remain for next three days in hospital where she was rushed after suspected drug overdose, a senior doctor said today. Indrani is in a semi conscious state and will be under treatment and observation at the hospital for three more days.

Necessary blood and urine tests were carried out and a team of CBI officials was also briefed on her medical condition, another doctor at the hospital said. Indrani was rushed to JJ hospital from Arthur road jail yesterday afternoon in an unconscious condition after she allegedly overdosed on anti epileptic pills. Lahane said Indrani’s stomach wash has been collected and will be sent for forensic analysis to conclusively determine if she consumed the drugs.
It is suspected that Indrani went into depression after learning about the demise of her mother in Guwahati on Tuesday. JJ hospital doctors were given prison records that showed Indrani was taking anti-epilepsy medicines since September 11. There is a possibility that she collected the pills and consumed them all at once. She came to us in an unconscious state. She has also developed respiratory distress, the doctor said.
Indrani has been admitted to the critical care unit on the second floor of the hospital. Indrani, wife of media baron Peter Mukerjea, was arrested by Khar police on August 25 for her alleged role in the murder of Sheena, her daughter from an earlier marriage, in 2012.
The doctor said though the former media magnate is responding to the treatment, but she is not out of danger. The doctor further said that respiration problem remains.The doctor confirmed that principal secretary and a team of CBI officials visited Indrani at the hospital last night.
