Mumbai, April 5 (IANS) Police here on Tuesday registered a case against actor-producer Rahulraj Singh for allegedly abetting the suicide of popular television actress Pratyusha Banerjee, an official said.
The case was registered by police in Bangur Nagar after the victim’s mother Soma Banerjee gave a fresh statement implicating Singh in her daughter’s suicide, said Mumbai police spokesperson Deputy Commissioner of Police Dhananjay Kulkarni.
Rahulraj Singh — who was interrogated by police for two days after Pratyusha’s suicide on April 1 — is presently undergoing treatment in a suburban hospital for the past two days.
He is likely to be arrested after his discharge from hospital in a day or so.
Since Pratyusha’s death, her friends, colleagues and television industry workers have claimed that one of the reasons behind her suicide was the alleged rocky relationship with her boyfriend.
Police have charged Rahulraj Singh with abetment of suicide, voluntarily causing hurt, criminal intimidation and intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.
