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.

In a new development that could spell fresh trouble for the Shalimar Bagh-located Max Hospital, the Delhi Medical Council (DMC) has issued a notice to the hospital seeking details of its qualification and details of the Delhi Nursing Council registration.

The notice was issued on December 20 — the day the hospital resumed its services, soon after its registration was cancelled by the Delhi government and was barred from admitting new patients.

The Delhi government’s action had come after a 22-week-old premature baby was declared dead at the hospital, even though he was alive, and handed over to his parents in a plastic bag, along with his still-born twin.

“Based on the medical reports that a newborn baby was declared dead along with his still-born twin and handed over to his parents at Max Hospital, Shalimar Bagh. In this regard, the DMC has taken suo motu notice of the media reports, alleging medical negligence on the part of doctors of the hospital, and (the case) is being examined by DMC,” reads the notice.

The Council has also directed the hospital to submit a statement of defence, together with any other documents in support of their defence, within 15 days.

“You are directed to submit a copy of your qualification and Delhi Nursing Council registration details,” the notice said.

Girish Tyagi, the DMC Secretary, said the notice issued “is of concern to all the doctors in the hospital related to the case”, and the Council had sought their individual replies.

“We want to check the role of every doctor involved in the case, including the gynaecologist when the baby was delivered. We want to know what exactly happened,” Tyagi told IANS. IANS
