Mumbai: Indrani Mukerjea, who is alleged to have killed her daughter Sheena Bora, was discharged from Mumbai's JJ Hospital on Tuesday.

She is now back in Byculla Jail.

JJ Hospital Dean TP Lahane confirmed that she had been discharged after being treated for four days.

The 43-year-old was rushed to hospital on Friday after collapsing in Byculla prison after suspected overdose of anti-depressant pills.

Meanwhile, a Mumbai court today reserved its order till tomorrow on a CBI plea seeking permission to interrogate in jail Indrani Mukherjea and two other accused in the Sheena murder case.

Seeking permission to quiz Indrani, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and her driver Shyam Rai in jail, CBI, which had moved an application yesterday, told the court that it has just taken over the investigation from Mumbai Police and interrogation of the trio was necessary, as per PTI.

The agency submitted that if the permission (for interrogation) is not given then it will have to rely on the investigation conducted by Mumbai Police.

Yesterday, the local court had extended the trio's judicial custody till October 19.

It had also asked JJ Hospital authorities to furnish the medical report of Indrani.

Indrani's lawyer Gunjan Mangala told the court that she does not have any objection to her client being interrogated by CBI in jail.
