Mumbai, April 7: Indrani Mukerjea, the prime accused in daughter Sheena Bora’s murder and former head of INX media, was rushed to state—run JJ Hospital for ‘suspected overdose’ on Friday. According to media reports, doctor said that she was rushed to the emergency ward in a delirious condition. Mukerjea is suspected to have taken an overdose of antidepressants. Her test reports are reportedly awaited.
Notably, this was Indrani second such hospitalisation. Earlier on October 2, 2015, Indrani was admitted to J J Hospital after she complained of ‘uneasiness’. She was discharged four days later on October 6. After Indrani’s hospitalisation, conflicting reports had emerged on suspected drug overdose in prison.
