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.

Tech major Infosys has donated Rs 2.50 crore to the Neurosurgery Department of the state-run Medical College hospital, here.

The money was used to install a brand new neurosurgery dedicated operating microscope, replacing a two decade old one.

Speaking to IANS, P. Anil, Head of Department Neurosurgery, said that Infosys answered to a request he had made in 2017.

“I took a chance and I wrote to Infosys if they can come to our help. It was an year back. Soon they responded and after they undertook a brief study of our activities, they decided to help us,” he added.

“In between there were some issues with regards to GST but finally the equipment has been installed. We have already put it to use in the first case, a few days back,” said Anil.

Anil said the new piece of device has come as a huge boon to the patients who mostly come from poor background.

The Thiruvananthapuram Medical College hospital has the most crowded casualty department with accident cases coming for expert and quick treatment.

Speaking to IANS, Sunil Jose, a top official attached to the Infosys unit here, said their company always has set aside money as part of the corporate social responsibility programme.

“Our studies found out that the department provides yeomen services to accident victims and most of the patients came from the low and middle income category.

“In this microscope project, we started working on it as soon as we got the proposal from the Neurosurgery Department. We felt that they are doing a good job and sanctioned it,” said Jose.

Incidentally this is not the first time that Infosys have helped the hospital. They had built a sky walk connecting the major building after finding out that patients were being moved in stretchers through the road.  IANS
