Apr 7, 2016: The demise of Pratyusha Banerjee has sent shockwaves across the nation. Best remembered as Anandi from Balika Vadhu, Pratyusha ended her life in her Goregaon apartment apparently due to depression caused by turmoil in her personal life.
The news coming in is that her beau, Rahul Raj Singh’s anticipatory bail plea has been rejected. He has been booked for abetment to suicide, assault and intimidation. Rahul is being represented by Ashok Saraogi while Falguni Brahmbhatt has taken on Pratyusha’s case.
The police will interrogate him once he’s out of the hospital, where he has been admitted for depression. According to the doctors he has showcased some suicidal tendencies.
In the past few days, a number of details have emerged, which indicate that everything was not hunky-dory between the couple. Friends have said that she complained to them about Rahul’s abusive nature, how he distanced her from her family and conned away her money. His family too have hurled accusations at Pratyusha’s parents citing they were only interested in her money and usurped it.
One of the issues that is being given consideration is the absence of a suicide note. On April 1, the body of Pratyusha Banerjee was discovered by her boyfriend at their Goregaon flat. She hung herself to died by the ceiling fan. Rahul rushed her to the hospital and there she was pronounced dead. Friends from the fraternity have started a crusade for justice and we hope that the truth unravels soon.
