Suspecting Pratyusha had affairs with friends, Rahul tortured her
Television actress Pratyusha Banerjee’s suicide has brought to light the suffering that she was going through by the hands of her boyfriend and live-in partner Rahul Singh.
The police, during the hearing of the Singh’s bail plea, told the court that they had found old injury marks Pratyusha body, which might indicate that she was tortured by Rahul, ultimately pushing her to commit suicide.
The prosecution told the court that statements of 14 witnesses had been recorded by the police, and added that these witnesses said Pratyusha ended her life because she was fed up with the frequent fights between her and Rahul.
Through these statements, it had emerged that Rahul used to doubt Pratyusha was having an affair with her ex-boyfriend or other friends. The witnesses had also told the police that he used to abuse her mentally and physically.
Things got worse when Pratyusha learnt that Rahul was cheating on her with his ex-girlfriend Saloni Sharma, said prosecution lawyer.
The couple would fight often Rahul would beat her, the prosecution argued, adding that Rahul’s ex-girlfriend had also abused Pratyusha to make her leave Rahul.
