Indrani admitted to hospital, undergoes medical tests
Mumbai: Indrani Mukerjea, a former media executive arrested in the murder case of her daughter Sheena Bora, was admitted to J J Hospital, where she was brought in a "semi-conscious" state on Friday night, an official said on Saturday.
Mukerjea, 46, who was lodged in Byculla jail in South Mumbai under judicial custody, has been admitted in the Critical Care Unit (CCU) of the state-run hospital.
"She was brought to the hospital in a semi-conscious state around midnight last night. She is currently undergoing treatment in the CCU. Her condition is relatively better now as compared to the state she was brought to the hospital," S D Nanandkar, dean of J J Hospital, said.
The former co-founder of INX Media, arrested in August 2015, is facing trial in the Sheena Bora murder case in which she is the prime accused.
"She is now stable and we have sent her blood samples for analysis. It is suspected that she consumed some pills, but we are not sure and are examining her," he added.
Sanjay Surase, medical superintendent of the health facility, said Mukerjea was admitted at around 11.15 pm.
She is under the supervision of Wiqar Shaikh, Surase said. "Her vitals are stable. She has undergone a series of medical tests, including CT scan and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), and their reports are awaited," Surase said.
