New Delhi: Television actress Pratyusha Banerjee's boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh had yesterday told the police that he knew about her pregnancy. However, he took to a u-turn while addressing the media outside Bangur Nagar police station, stating Pratyusha was never pregnant slamming it as a rumour.
According to Bollywood Life.com, in an interview with Bombay Times, he was quoted as saying, “After she told me that she had missed her periods, we went to the doctor for the pregnancy test. However, we mutually decided to abort it since we were not married and only living in together. I went with her to the doctor for the abortion, but since there was a long waiting, she told me to leave. I, in fact, went the following day to the same doctor to get medicines prescribed for her. We decided to terminate the pregnancy thinking about our future as we were planning to get married in November.”
Meanwhile, Pratyusha's parents have filed a petition in the Bombay High Court to transfer the case to CBI. Rahul is currently out on anticipatory bail, which will end on April 25, 2016.
