MUM­BAI: For­mer media ty­coon In­drani Muk­er­jea, ac­cused of her daugh­ter Sheena Bora’s mur­der, col­lapsed in jail a week ago, not be­cause of a drug over­dose, but be­cause of weak­ness, the state gov­ern­ment and jail author­i­ties said in a media brief­ing on Satur­day.

In­drani was ad­mit­ted to JJ Hos­pi­tal for five days af­ter she col­lapsed in jail on Oc­to­ber 2.

In­drani is suf­fer­ing from chronic Is­chaemia, a con­di­tion where the sup­ply of blood to the brain is low, said Vi­jay Sat­bir Singh, the prin­ci­pal home sec­re­tary. She has been pre­scribed Chlo­p­itab and is also tak­ing vi­ta­min tablets, he said. Sources said In­drani has lost 10kg af­ter she was trans­ferred to the By­culla prison.

“Her treat­ment at JJ Hos­pi­tal was based on a clin­i­cal con­di­tion, but that does not mean she was suf­fer­ing from drug over­dose. In­drani’s clin­i­cal pic­ture must have made doc­tors think it was a case of drug over­dose. Her vi­tal signs, such as blood pres­sure, pulse and res­pi­ra­tion, were nor­mal. She was never on ven­ti­la­tor sup­port,” Singh said.
