Mumbai: Indrani Mukerjea, one of the prime accused in the sensational Sheena Bora murder case was rushed to a Mumbai hospital in an unconscious state on Friday afternoon.

She was rushed there after she complained of uneasiness and breathing issues. Her condition is serious, according to the dean of Mumbai’s Sir JJ Hospital where she has been admitted.

“Indrani Mukherjea is unconscious since the time she was brought here. Her condition is serious,” Dean TP Lahane told reporters late on Friday. “We think that she consumed some tablets… we are treating her on that basis,” he added.

An official of the Byculla Jail, where she is in judicial custody,  said Indrani used to take two pills for epileptic problems, one in morning and one in evening, under the supervision of the jail authorities.

The jail authorities are waiting for her medical report to know what exactly has gone wrong with her.

Indrani was arrested on August 25 for her alleged role in the murder of Sheena Bora, her daughter from a previous marriage, in April 2012.

Along with Indrani, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and her former driver Shyamvar Rai were also nabbed. Since September 7, Indrani, Khanna and Rai have been lodged in judicial custody.

The CBI is likely to submit its reply to both applications by Mukerjea on December 14.
