Pratyusha Banerjee’s boyfriend taken into custody; friends, neighbours cry foul
With the truth behind television star Pratyusha Banerjee’s suicide yet to be unravelled–the anticipation around the case is only increasing by the minute.
While some have assigned Banerjee’s death to her tumultuous relationship with boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh, others have gone on to say she was suffering from an acute case of depression.
Rahul Raj Singh who has been under the radar of the police since the news of Banerjee’s death surfaced–has now been taken into custody for interrogation. While the location of the inquiry remains a secret–the tension around Singh’s involvement in the case is gaining attention from all quarters.
According to reports, Rahul Raj Singh has said that he left the house at 10 in the morning and when he got back home at 4 pm, he saw Pratyusha hanging from the ceiling. He added that Pratyusha was fine at the time he left the house.
Reports say he wasn’t taken into custody yesterday because there was nothing to indicate his involvement in the death. After the cops spoke to their cook and watchman, it emerged that Pratyusha and Rahul used to have frequent fights.
The Jamshedpur-born actress, Banerjee who had been part of shows like Balika Vadhu, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa and Bigg Boss was declared dead at Mumbai’s Koikilaben Hospital last night after her body was discovered by her boyfriend.
Her parents landed in Mumbai this morning.
The 24-year-old television actress was found hanging from the ceiling of her Bangur Nagar flat in suburban Kandivali, according to the Police. After being rushed to Mumbai’s Koikilaben Hospital, the actress was declared dead soon after.
With Banerjee’s friends from the television industry are still in shock over her sudden demise–actor Ajaz Khan alleged that Pratyusha Banerjee’s death wasn’t a case of a suicide, but a murder. Banerjee’s close friend Dolly Bindra was also quoted as saying that “Pratyusha was a strong girl, and couldn’t have committed suicide.”
