On Saturday evening, Mukerjea’s condition had started improving as she opened her eyes and started responding to commands in a semi-conscious state. Within 12 hours, she is said to be conscious and is able to respond and reply the doctors about her state. “She is a little drowsy but conscious and was able to respond to doctors by afternoon,” said Lahane. He added that Indrani will most probably be discharged within a day or two, depending upon the recovery but she is stable.
