Indrani Mukerjea consumes pills, condition serious
Prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case, Indrani Mukerjea was rushed to a hospital in Mumbai on Friday after she complained of chest pain.
The dean of Mumbai’s JJ Hospital Hospital has revealed that Indrani Mukerjea had possibly consumed some antiepileptic tablets and was unconscious when she was admitted to the hospital. The prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case was rushed to a hospital in Mumbai on Friday after she complained of chest pain.
According to reports, Mukerjea, who is currently in jail along with other two accused Sanjeev Khanna and her driver Shyamvar Rai, was taken to JJ Hospital for medical check up after she reported of chest pain. Mukerjea has been kept under observation in the hospital till further tests are conducted.
Indrani’s mother Durga Rani Bora, who was bedridden for the past two years, passed away in Guwahati on Thursday. Earlier this week, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) registered an FIR in the sensational murder case naming Indrani Mukerjea, the victim’s mother, Mukerjea’s ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and her former driver Shyamvar Rai.
The CBI filed the case under various sections of Indian Penal Code including criminal conspiracy, murder, abduction, destruction of evidence, causing hurt by giving poison and Arms Act.
CBI took over the investigation of the case which was earlier registered by Mumbai Police on the allegations that the accused persons hatched a criminal conspiracy to murder Sheena. In pursuance of this conspiracy, the accused allegedly abducted Sheena, murdered her and disposed off her body, agency spokesperson said in a statement.
The decision to handover the probe to CBI came after days of uncertainty on the supervisory role of former Mumbai police chief Rakesh Maria who was shunted out in the midst of the inquiry that he had helmed proactively.
The decision was taken by the state government after Maharashtra Director General of Police Sanjeev Dayal submitted a status report on the case which had concluded that the case is not limited to murder alone, but there are many questions on financial dealings that remain unanswered.
25-year-old Sheena was murdered on 24 April, 2012, and her body was burnt and disposed off in a forest in Raigad district the next day. Also read: 7 unanswered questions in Sheena Bora murder mystery
