Indrani Mukerjea, the prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case, has been advised to undergo High-Resolution Computed Tomography (HRCT) scan of the temporal bone, a doctor at the state-run JJ Hospital said. Mukerjea, lodged in the Byculla Jail in Mumbai, was brought to JJ Hospital on Friday, September 28, 2018, after she complained of a headache and low blood pressure.
She was discharged after tests and sent back to prison on September 29, 2018, a hospital official said. She had complained of twitching, weakness, and pain on the left side of the face along with decreased hearing ability, Sanjay Surase, superintendent of JJ Hospital had said earlier.
The temporal bone is a large bilateral bone on the lateral wall of the skull and HRCT, a modification of the CT scan would provide a direct visual window to observe minute structural details, he said.
"Her audiometry was done today and the report was normal. The patient has been advised HRCT-temporal bone," Dr. Surase added.
Mukerjea is accused of killing her daughter Sheena Bora (24) with the help of others allegedly due to a dispute over financial transactions. The killing came to light in August 2015 after Mukerjea's former driver revealed it to the police. Sheena was Indrani’s daughter from her first marriage. Indrani married the former CEO of Star India, Peter Mukherjea in 2002.
On April 24, 2012, Indrani Mukerjea, her ex-husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyamwar Rai hatched a plot to murder her daughter Sheena Bora. Sheena was in a serious relationship with Rahul Mukerjea who is Peter Mukerjea's son. Indrani and Peter Mukerjea filed a mutual divorce case in Bandra Family Court, Mumbai and appeared before the court on September 18, 2018.
