In a tragic incident, a mother of two-year-old committed suicide before her child reportedly because she was depressed over actor Pratyusha Banerjee’s death.
Madhu Mahanand (26) from Raipur had been closely following the news about Pratyusha’s death and had reportedly failed to accept it.

According to reports, Madhu was obsessed with the character of ‘Anandi’ in the popular TV show ‘Balika Vadhu’, which was played by Pratyusha.
Upset over Pratyusha’s death, on April 6, Madhu is said to have locked herself in her room with her son. She then hung herself from the ceiling fan.
When her husband Nakul returned home from work that evening, he found the room locked from inside and forced the door open. Upon discovering the tragedy he immediately informed the police control room.

Police initially detained him on suspicion of foul play, but later allowed him go after Madhu’s parents told them about their daughter’s obsession with the TV character.
