Five months ago, the television industry was left in shock when the news of Pratyusha Banerjee’s suicide surfaced up. The ‘Balika Vadhu’ fame actress had hanged herself from a fan at her Kandivli residence.
Reports suggested that it was her stressful relationship with boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh that imposed her to take this fatal step.
Rahul is infamously known for his aberrant behaviour in public places.
The actress in her statement stated the incident:
“At 12.30 am, when we were entering the restaurant, Rahul saw us and suddenly became furious. He approached us and started arguing with my friend and even hit him. When I tried stopping Rahul, he abused and hit me as well. When I approached Rahul’s female friend, who was with him at restaurant, she too misbehaved and said that whatever Rahul did was right.”
The actress also claimed that Rahul was in an inebriated state. The case has become more tricky because Rahul and his friend has too filed an FIR against the actress.
The Police officer from Amboli police station told:
“We have filed a cross case under section 354, 509, 504 and 34 of IPC. We will verify CCTV footage and take statements in the matter. Further investigations are on before arresting anyone.”
Final inquiry into the matter is still awaited. Till then, we can conclude that Rahul’s public image has become more awful, first, it was Pratyusha’s suicide case and now, molestation trial.
