Mumbai: While many have expressed their shock and grief over the death of TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee, controversies queen Rakhi Sawant had something entirely different to say.
Rakhi, a close friend of Pratyusha, claims that Pratyusha was “tensed” about her relationship with boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh.
Rakhi alleged that Rahul’s ex-girlfriend had forwarded an intimate video of him and herself to Pratyusha. She went on to add that Pratyusha was upset because of the video, and it might have led her to commit suicide.
On Tuesday, Rakhi held a press conference and urged India’s PM Narendra Modi to ban ceiling fans. She said, “Daughters, sisters, daughter-in-laws commit suicide by hanging themselves from a ceiling fan. I want ceiling fans to go away. I request PM Modi to ban ceiling fans from everyone’s house. If you love your daughter or sister, then banish the ceiling fan. Remove it from your house and use a table fan or AC.”
Meanwhile, Rahul has been booked for abetment of her suicide last week and also slapped with the charges of criminal intimidation. The producer, currently in hospital, was booked after police registered an FIR based on a complaint filed by Banerjee's mother Soma at Bangurnagar Police Station.
He has been booked under IPC sections related to abetment of suicide, voluntarily causing hurt and criminal intimidation, among others, a police official said.
On April 1, the 24-year-old actress, who shot into fame for her role of Anandi in hit TV series ‘Balika Vadhu’, committed suicide by hanging herself inside her flat at Goregoan area of western suburbs....
