Indrani was being given two tablets, one of anti-anxiety and the other of anti-epilepsy as was prescribed by the doctors at JJ Hospital.

Indrani’s mother, Durga Rani Bora, died in Guwahati on Thursday and it is probable that Indrani went into depression after she was told about the demise of her mother.
