Pratyusha suicide case: Bombay HC refuses to pull in crime branch, next hearing on May 1

Mumbai, News Nation Bureau | Updated : 21 April 2016, 03:06 PM

The Bombay High Court on Wednesday refused to transfer actress Pratyusha Banerjee’s case to crime branch. The petition was filed by Shoma Banerjee, mother of actress Pratyusha Banerjee who allegedly committed suicide on April 1. The Court has asked cops to submit latest update in the case while posting new date of hearing on May 4.

Pratyusha's parents have been alleging that their daughter could not have committed suicide and that her partner Rahul Singh must have murdered her. Rahul is at present out on pre-arrest bail.

Last week, the parents of the TV star had written to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis seeking a probe into her death by Mumbai Police Crime Branch following which the state government said it may be done.  Pratyusha's mother Shoma had alleged that Rahul was "solely responsible for her death".

She had also alleged that instead of seriously investigating the matter, the Bangur Nagar police, where the case has been registered, was giving a free hand to the accused to destroy the evidence.
