Mumbai: As Sheen Bora murder case continues to witness more twists and turns with each passing day, the police are hoping to record Indrani Mukerjea's statement on Monday. Media magnate Indrani, prime accused in the sensational murder case, was rushed from jail to JJ Hospital in a serious condition on October 2.

Police are awaiting a clearance from JJ Hospital authorities, where Indrani is still admitted. On Sunday, Indrani regained consciousness and is stated to be out of danger, hospital authorities said. She is likely to be discharged by Tuesday.

The 43-year-old Indrani was rushed to JJ hospital from Byculla jail on Friday afternoon in an unconscious condition after she allegedly overdosed on anti-depressant pills.

To a query on the conflicting forensic findings on her suspected drug overdose, Dr TP Lahane, Dean of state-run JJ Hospital said, "The forensic test is authentic and reliable and we have accepted the findings of the report. We have been giving her treatment on the basis of clinical findings and she is responding to our treatment."

Dr Lahane had said a report on Indrani's urine samples from Hinduja Hospital laboratory confirmed that level of benzodiazepine - an anti depressant - was found raised.

"Normally if a patient is on antidepressant drug the level of benzodiazepine in urine is 200. But the level of benzodiazepine is 2088 as per the Hinduja report. The report is positive for drug overdose. Anti-epileptic drugs has already been ruled out. The (test) has come negative.It is only the anti-depressant that has caused the thing (collapse)," he said.

Wife of media baron Peter Mukerjea, Indrani was arrested by Khar Police on August 25 for her alleged role in the murder of Sheena, her daughter from an earlier marriage, in 2012.

Indrani's daughter Sheena, 24, was allegedly kidnapped from outside National College in Bandra and strangled to death in a car by Indrani, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyamvar Rai.
