‘Indrani is likely to be discharged in 48 hrs’

Sources say when she’s shifted back to the Byculla Women’s Jail, she may be lodged in a less crowded cell

Mumbai : Indrani Mukerjea, who is the prime suspect in the Sheena Bora murder case, is said to be stable and in a conscious state. If her condition continues to improve, then she might get discharge in the next 48 hours, sources at JJ Hospital said.

Dr T P Lahane, dean of JJ Hospital said: “Indrani is in a state of consciousness since yesterday [Sunday] and her condition is stable for now. She is consuming liquids and her breathing is also normal. If there is a requirement, then we will start giving her oral strips.”

Indrani was admitted to JJ hospital on Friday at 2 pm in an unconscious state from Byculla jail after an alleged overdose of anti-depressant pills. Following this, the samples of her blood, gastric lavage and urine were sent for analysis to Hinduja Hospital and Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) in Kalina to determine the presence of chemicals or drugs.

The Hinduja tests sample results stated positive for presence of anti-depressant pills which is Benzodiazepine whose levels were 10 times higher than normal. The tests revealed that the level of benzodiazepine in Indrani’s case was 2,088 as against 200 which is the normal level found in urine.

Meanwhile, the tests results from FSL came out negative, which the dean of the hospital earlier refuted and then accepted on Sunday. He added that they had treated Indrani on the clinical findings of Hinduja hospital to which she had positively responded. The police officers couldn’t record the statement of Indrani on Monday as the doctors treating her have not permitted questioning her, added Dr Lahane. Following the discharge, Indrani will be shifted back to jail wherein she will be put in a cell which is less crowded, sources added.
