Pratyusha Banerjee suicide: Rahul Raj Singh threatens to jump off the building

Mr Banerjee suspects foul play and fears that the hospital is saving Rahul from police investigation by declaring him unwell.

Mumbai: On April 15, Friday, late TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee’s boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh, who is accused of abetment of his girlfriend’s suicide, threatened to jump off the hospital building.

Reportedly, two hours after returning from the Bangur Nagar police station, Rahul locked himself up in the hospital’s washroom. After several minutes, his worried relatives sent for the doctor. When the doctor tried to convince Rahul to unlock the door, he threatened to jump off the building.

Later, Rahul calmed down and stepped out of the washroom. After a psychic evaluation, Rahul was discharged from the hospital on Saturday (April 16) evening.

However, father of deceased actress Pratyusha Banerjee has filed a complaint to the Indian Medical Association (IMA) via email on Saturday against Shree Sai hospital in Mumbai for protecting Rahul Raj Singh and conniving with him by taking money.

In his letter, Mr Banerjee has said that he suspects foul play and fears that the hospital is saving Rahul from police investigation by declaring him unwell.

According to Mr Banerjee, his wife and he suspect that their daughter was killed by Rahul and after her death, Rahul, on the pretext of some illness, got admitted to Shri Sai Hospital, which is looking like a high-handed conspiracy between the accused and the hospital management.

Mr Banerjee’s letter said, “We also have doubts that they have unofficially taken money from Rahul as well and are giving him protection and helping him to get bail on medical grounds, which is a matter of serious concern. We are also doubtful regarding the registration of the hospital and its doctors.”

Mr Banerjee further alleged that they have learnt that in the past too, Shri Sai Hospital has shielded criminals by taking huge amounts of money from them. Hence, an inquiry should be conducted against the hospital and its management.

Meanwhile, Dr Goel rubbished Mr Banerjee’s claims saying that the police was keeping a close eye on Rahul and that initially, he was admitted for vomiting but later, they found he was suffering from mental illness because of which the psychiatrist treated him accordingly.

“He was constantly saying things and showing suicidal intentions, so we are treating him. If we had taken money from him, how could we have discharged him now,” said Dr Goel, adding that there was no conspiracy and they being doctors, were treating him.
