Initial probe suggests Pratyusha Banerjee was murdered, claims public prosecutor
The Public Prosecutor says Pratyusha Banerjee was murdered.
Mumbai: A new twist has hit the Pratyusha Banerjee suicide case, who was found dead at her flat in suburban Goregaon on April 1, 2016.
As per a report in India today, following Rahul Raj Singh's anticipatory bail plea hearing, the public prosecutor said that the early leads suggested the actress was murdered.
However, the Mumbai police said that they could apply murder charges on Rahul Raj Singh only after they get his custody.
According to another report, initial investigation suggests that ''Rahul could have entered the building (where Pratyusha hanged herself from the ceiling) through the adjacent window, but wasted a good half an hour in calling the neighbour.
A source revealed that Pratyusha's dupatta wasn't hanging but was kept aside. Also, no object was found using which Pratyusha could have climbed to reach the ceiling fan to commit suicide.''
Meanwhile, Rahul is currently out on an anticipatory bail granted by the Bombay High Court.
Latest updates on the tragic case reveal that the Bombay High Court had refused to transfer the case to the crime branch, despite late Pratyusha's mother Shoma Banerjee's appeal.
