Mumbai: In a relief for the authorities, Indrani Mukerjea – one of the three prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case – who was admitted to a hospital here in an unconscious state on Friday afternoon, is responding to treatment, a top official said on Saturday.

Dean of Sir JJ Hospital, TP 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,” Lahane told media-persons here on Saturday.

Indrani was rushed to Sir JJ Hospital after she complained of uneasiness and breathing issues around 2 PM on Friday.

Late Friday night, her condition was described serious as a series of medical tests were carried out, according to Lahane.

“We think that she (Indrani Mukherjea) consumed some tablets… we are treating her on that basis,” he added.

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, he said, adding the matter would be probed.

Indrani was arrested on August 25 for her 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.

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.

The CBI lodged a separate case against the three late last month.

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

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
