An FIR was filed against Rahul on charges of abetment of Pratyusha’s suicide and assault.

TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee was found hanging from the ceiling fan of her residence on April 1. Ever since she allegedly ended her life, her boyfriend Rahul has come under scrutiny. Rahul, was the one who took Pratyusha to the hospital where she was declared dead.

The ‘Balika Vadhu’ actress’ parents alleged that Rahul used to torture their daughter and is responsible for the drastic step she took. Following, a fresh statement by Pratyusha’s mother Soma Banerjee, Rahul was booked under sections 306 (abetment of suicide), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation).
