Mumbai: Indrani Mukerjea, a prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case, was admitted to the state-run JJ Hospital Friday night. According to doctors, she was admitted due to chest pain and is being kept under observation in the critical care unit (CCU). Her condition is now stable.

This is the second time in two months that Indrani has been admitted to hospital. In April, she was admitted in a semi-conscious condition and subsequently underwent a series of medical tests.

Dr Nanandkar, JJ Hospital, said, “Indrani underwent a series of medical tests after she was admitted to the CCU. Accordingly, a clinical evaluation was done. The ECG (electrocardiogram) showed mild changes (in heart rhythm), while her chest X-ray report was normal.”

“A MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) test report of her neck is awaited. Her condition is not serious. Some tests related to cardiology are pending,” Dr Nanandkar said.

Indrani will be discharged in two to three days and till then, she will remain in the CCU, he added.

Sheena Bora (24) was killed and her body disposed of in a forest area in the neighbouring Raigad district in April 2012, according to the police. Indrani, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyamvar Rai were arrested for the crime which came to light in August 2015. Shyamvar later turned an approver (prosecution witness) in the case.

Sheena Bora, Indrani’s daughter from an earlier relationship, was killed over a financial dispute, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which is probing the case, said. The agency later arrested Indrani’s husband, Peter Mukerjea, a former media baron, for allegedly being part of the murder conspiracy. The high-profile case, which attracted a lot of media attention, was initially handled by the Mumbai police and later transferred to the CBI.
