Here is an update on this post, wherein it has now been established that overdose happened and that a Special Investigative Team (SIT) has been constituted to look into the matter.
An SIT has been ordered to look into the drug overdose incident
Indrani Mukerjea, the key witness in the INX Media case is now admitted in Mumbai JJ Hospital. Her deposition exposes the bribery in the INX Media case and she has clearly said that she had met former Finance Minister P Chidambaram before giving around Rs. Five crores bribe to his son Karti to get dubious approval from Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB). Her statement is very crucial in this open and shut case to fix Chidambaram and son. So her being found unconscious in the jail creates doubts in the minds of many.
The Doctors of JJ Hospital has said that there is a possibility that Indrani may have been poisoned or overdosed on drugs. At present, she has two power enemies – Chidambaram and his son Karti because her deposition is foolproof get conviction for both of them. Many crucial witnesses in many cases were found dead in jails in mysterious conditions.“Indrani was brought here in disoriented condition. Tests have been done. Preliminary tests point towards poisoning/ drug overdose. We are waiting for reports,” said S D Nanandkar, Dean of JJ Hospital.Indrani is in jail for the past three years along with her husband Peter Mukerjea after being caught in the murder of her daughter Sheena Bora. Indrani’s role in INX Media bribe case was discovered by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) after raiding Karti’s firms in December 2015. During interrogation by CBI and ED, Indrani has confessed that she had given around Rs. Five crores to Karti’s firms and met Chidambaram. She also said so in her statement before the Magistrate that Chidambaram urged her to help Karti’s business and was forced to oblige many things demanded by Chidambaram as she was facing an Income Tax notice for illegally bringing Rs.300 crores through tax havens.After this crucial deposition, many people who were favoring Chidambaram in TV debates were found trying to discredit Indrani. We have seen the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI)’s crucial draft report on Aircel-Maxis scam found in Chidambaram’s bedroom during the raid of ED officers. The LookOut Circular issued against Karti was leaked and paved way for him to challenge in courts. Being a former Union Home and Finance Minister, many senior police officers are linked with Chidambaram and he has many cronies still ruling in the Finance Ministry too.It is high time security of Indrani is enhanced as it is now evident that powerful people wanted to eliminate her from further revealing the truth. There should be a probe on how she was poisoned or over dosed in Mumbai jail.
