Former media executive Indrani Mukerjea, who is accused of murdering her daughter Sheena Bora, had collapsed in Mumbai’s Byculla women’s jail on October 2 due to weakness.
“Overall my opinion after conducting inquiry is, there was no overdose of any medicine, drug or poison.
Ms Mukerjea had briefly stopped taking medicines and has a history of fainting, the IG Prisons added.
42-year-old Ms Mukerjea, arrested in August, had fainted in jail on October 2 and was then admitted to JJ Hospital in an senseless state. She was treated and sent back to prison earlier this week.
The Central Bureau of Investigation, which is probing the case, has also requested for the inquiry report of Inspector General of Police (Prisons) into what led to the dilapidation, of Ms Mukerjea’s health. Last week, there was confusion over whether Ms Mukerjea had overdosed on medicines or not. A forensic report on the samples the CBI has asked the state to preserve, ruled out the presence of drugs in her system.
Ms Mukrejea, along with her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and her former driver Shyam Rai, allegedly murdered her daughter Sheena Bora in 2012.
