Mumbai: The parents of TV star Pratyusha Banerjee, who allegedly committed suicide, recently shot off a letter to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis requesting for a probe by Mumbai Police Crime Branch into her death.
In their letter to the CM, they have alleged that Pratyusha's boyfriend and actor-producer Rahul Raj Singh was "solely responsible for her death".
Now, in an interesting turn of events, Rahul's father Harshvardhan Singh has written a letter to the CM. The letter, dated April 16, states that Rahul has been traumatised and was in the hospital from April 3 since his to-be-wife committed suicide.
Harshvardhan requested the CM to ensure that justice prevails and there is no unnecessary interference or pressure by any anti-social people. He claimed that certain people, who do not know the actual facts are harming his family name and reputation. He expressed that due to all these false allegations, Rahul may take some drastic step.
On the other hand, Pratyusha's parents 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.
In his letter to Chief Minister, Mr Banerjee’s 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....
