"The next 48 hours will be critical for her," J J Hospital Dean Dr T P Lahane told reporters today when asked if she is out of danger. "We can not say that Indrani is out of danger before the next 48 hours. 72 hours are very critical out of which 24 hours have already passed. We will be able to say only after 48 hours whether her condition has improved or not", Lahane said.

He added, "she is in a deep sleep right now but her blood pressure and pulse levels are normal. She is not on ventilator support but we are providing her with oxygen because she is not able to breath automatically," he said.

"We did not find the drug in the gastric test. If the drug must have dissolved in the body we will come to know when we get the urine and blood sample report by tomorrow evening," Lahane stated.

Asked if any report has emerged that she had attempted suicide in the prison yesterday where she was lodged under judicial remand, he said, "We can not say anything about that for now."

Wife of media baron Peter Mukerjea, Indrani was arrested by Khar police on August 25 for her alleged role in the murder of Sheena, her daughter from an earlier marriage, in 2012.
