Indrani Mukerjea, one of the three prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case, has been struck by dengue fever, Byculla Women’s prison authorities informed a Metropolitan Magistrate court here on Wednesday.
“We have informed the court that Mukerjea is suffering from suspected dengue and her platelet levels have gone down to 65,000,” a jail official said.
He further told that doctors from JJ hospital are attending to Indrani in the prison and if it is imperative to admit her, then she will be taken to the hospital.
The jail officer’s report, submitted to Magistrate RV Adone, came after the court directed the prison authorities to produce Indrani in view of the application made by CBI seeking her voice samples.
The central probe agency had told the court that it had got hold of some call records which purportedly featured her voice, and therefore it wanted her voice sample for verification.
Earlier this month, traces of cocaine were found in the urine samples of Indrani, who is lodged in a Maharashtra jail.
Indrani was then rushed from Byculla Jail to the Sir JJ Hospital, where she was under treatment for five days.
