Sonika Singh Chauhan death row: Police is unable to contact actor Vikram Chatterjee

New Delhi :  

It has been a month since Kolkata based model turned actress Sonika Singh Chauhan breathed her last followed by a tragic car accident took place near Lake Mall on Rashbehari Avenue in South Kolkata.

Chatterjee who was behind the wheel had been admitted to ICU and got released days after his stabilisation.

From Chatterjee's arrest to his instant release on bail, a bunch of controversial happenings took place till the date.

Meanwhile, latest media report suggests that Vikram Chatterjee is nowhere to be seen and police are unable to contact him for questioning.

Though his lawyear Rajdeep Majumdar is trying to convince people that his client is not at all trying to escape the scene, his absence at his Swinhoe Street house raised the doubts further.

On May 31, Kolkata Police moved the Alipore court seeking the addition of Section 304 of the IPC which is culpable homicide not amounting to murder, a non-bailable offense which could land the actor in jail for up to 10 years.

At present, Chatterjee is out on bail, as the charges slapped against him included bailable offenses under Section 304A - causing death due to negligence, rash driving and damage to public property.

Moreover, Vikram's anticipatory bail plea which was to be heard before on June 5, now gets postponed for a July hearing.

Though the officials have enough evidence from the video, CCTV footage and bills of the pubs to prove that he was drunk when his car met with an accident, the police are not likely to move for his arrest as yet.

Even a couple of days after Sonika's death the actor had addressed a press conference to claim that he was neither drunk not speeding his car which may be considered at the reason of the accident.

But after a huge protest by his friends and colleagues Vikram finally admitted to drinking.

Sonika who was a gem of Mumbai modelling circuits beside her tollywood career had also been hosting a prime time show on a national channel.

On the other hand, Vikram who is currently working in a bunch of bengali soap has also tried his hands in the movies like 'Khoj', 'Elar Char Adhyay' and 'Ami Ar Amar Girlfriends'.
