“Indrani Mukerjea” Could Have Attempted Suicide By Drug Overdose

Sharing is caring!

The sensational Sheena Bora murder case was transferred to the CBI last month. Indrani’s move to consume the yet-to-be identified tablets has raised questions on whether it was an attempted suicide, or whether “external influences” were involved.

Mumbai:  Former media executive Indrani Mukerjea, who was rushed to Mumbai’s JJ Hospital on Friday afternoon from the Byculla women’s jail after she complained of “uneasiness”, might have attempted suicide, sources in the police have said. Doctors attending to her say they are investigating whether Ms Mukerjea, who is accused of murdering her daughter, overdosed on prescription drugs.

The Dean of JJ Hospital, TP Lahane, said this morning that Ms Mukerjea’s condition improved overnight, but she is still not out of danger.

Speaking to The Quint, Dr Lahane said that at 9:55 pm, Indrani’sbrain” was normal, which in other words means that the MRI scan done after she was admitted to JJ Hospital threw up results that showed that her condition was “stable.” Dr Lahane added that Indrani was “unconscious but stable”.

At 11 pm Dr Lahane told The Quint, Indrani’s BP was 120/70”, and that “she overdosed on anti-depressants.” The Quint has learnt that Indrani, who was dependent on drugs that controlled epileptic attacks and depression may have accumulated some of the tablets since she was sent into judicial custody. This gives rise to a separate question – if Indrani was epileptic, why was that fact not cited in her bail plea?

Enquiries by The Quint over the past 48 hours have revealed that Peter Mukerjea, Indrani’s husband, and his son Rahul, who was supposedly in a relationship with Sheena Bora before she was allegedly murdered on 24 April 2012, were “not at their Marlow residence” in Mumbai’s upmarket Pochkhanwala Road in Worli on 1 and 2 October.
