Rahul Raj admits having fights with Pratyusha Banerjee, reveals what EXACTLY happened on her 'suicide' day
New Delhi: Pratyusha Banerjee’s boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh has finally admitted of having a problematic relationship with the late actress.
In his statement to media, Rahul confessed that there were fights between them but he denied that he had borrowed any money from her.
“Whatever money she earned, she sent to her parents. I admit we fought a lot. Fame had gone to her head. She’d always belittle me. However, I am innocent,” he said.
Pratyusha was purportedly found hanging from a ceiling fan in her suburban Goregaon residence by her boyfriend and television actor Rahul Raj Singh. He admitted her to the hospital before allegedly absconding from there.
Hoewver, in his defence Rahul said that he was advised by his lawyer to not to stay at the hospital because he wanted to avoid Pratyusha’s friends and their accusations.
Mumbai Police had held him for investigation, citing his probable hand behind the mysterious suicide.
Though, Rahul revealed his side of story, his relationship with the 'Balika Vadhu' actress and exactly what happened on that fateful day.
Here is the full account of his statement to the leading daily:
“Pratyusha and I were at our Goregaon flat on Thursday night and a female friend had joined us. We had a few drinks that night and, early on Friday morning, the friend wanted to visit Bandra’s Mount Mary church. I went along with her while Pratyusha stayed back. I returned at 4 am and went to sleep with Pratyusha in our room. When we woke up in the morning, the two of us ended up in an argument. Pratyusha started drinking and I was trying to convince her not to do it this early in the day. She did not listen to me. After a while, I too joined her. At around 1 pm, I left home for some work. After almost an hour, I called her on her phone but it was switched off. After several attempts, she finally answered the phone. I asked her if she wanted me to pack lunch for her but she refused. I reached home and the door was locked from inside. I asked my neighbour’s domestic help to enter the house from the balcony and unlatch the door. When he entered, he found Pratyusha hanging from the ceiling fan of the living room. Shocked and numb, I called my uncle and later, I called Pratyusha’s parents. I rushed her to Andheri’s Kokilaben Ambani Hospital where she was declared dead on arrival.”
Well! It was his side of story. The truth behind the mysterious suicide of Pratyusha Banerjee is still to be found by the police and investigation team.
