Indrani Mukerjea, who has been charged with the murder of her daughter Sheena Bora, has been rushed to JJ Hospital here after she complained that she was not feeling well.
Indrani had complained of chest pain to the police.
“Indrani was brought to the hospital today and we are diagnosing her ailment,” said T P Lahane, Dean of J J Hospital.
The 43-year-old former media executive is lodged in Arthur Road Jail under judicial custody. She was taken to the hospital after she complained of “uneasiness”, said DCP (Detection-1) Mohan Dahikar.
Indrani’s 83-year-old mother Durga Rani Bora had passed away at her residence.
Bora, who was bed-ridden for long, and was taken care of by her husband and grandson Mikhail Bora breathed her last at her Sundarpur area residence in Assam.
The CBI has taken over the probe in the high-profile murder case of Sheena Bora and registered a case in New Delhi against Indrani and two others for allegedly hatching a criminal conspiracy to kill her.
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.
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.
