Her health condition is better, the hospital's dean Dr S D Nanandkar said.
"Yes," she replied without saying anything else, as the police rushed her out of the hospital to take her to the prison.
She subsequently underwent a series of medical tests.
Her urine samples were sent for analysis at a forensic laboratory here and after receiving its report, the hospital authorities said she had an overdose of anti-depressants that were not prescribed to her.
"The reports of her urine sample showed a significant increase in the level of benzodiazepine, a class of anti-depressants," a doctor from the hospital had said, quoting from reports of the Forensic Science Laboratory at Kalina.
"Her health has improved and we have carried out a detailed check-up today. She can be sent back to the jail and we have informed the police and jail authorities accordingly," the hospital's superintendent Dr Sanjay Surase told reporters.
An X-ray of her lungs had earlier shown a patch, for which she was still on antibiotics. The treatment would continue for the next couple of days, Surase said.
Asked if her earlier medication of anti-depressant drugs would continue, he said, "Those medicines were prescribed by jail doctors. It is up to them to continue with the same medicines or make any changes."
The state prisons department had earlier ordered an inquiry to find out how Mukerjea fell ill in the jail.
The IG (prisons) will submit his report to the department after completing the inquiry.
Bora, 25, was killed and her body disposed of in a forest area in the neighbouring Raigad district in April 2012, according to the police.
