Dr Lahane relying on the report of Forensic Science Labratory stated that her blood samples did not show excessively high levels of Etizolam or Mirtazapine.

With all these things developing round the clock, so far there is still no clarity over the circumstances that led to the hospitalisation of Indrani.

Commenting on the tests conducted by PD Hinduja Hospital, he said that the tests reports of Hinduja Hospital however showed high levels of sedative benzodiazepine in Indrani's urine samples. He added that the inconsistency in findings of the two labarotories could be because of the type of tests conducted to detect the drugs.
