Pratyusha Banerjee recently committed suicide which had sent the entire nation in a state of shock. Now the deceased girl’s parents have come out in the public to express their annoyance with the police investigation in her suicide case. The parents recently held a press conference in Mumbai, where they said that the police are behaving uncooperative with them and are protecting the accused Rahul Raj Singh who apparently abated Pratyusha’s suicide.
A few days ago, it was reported that Rahul had absconded after being denied an anticipatory bail by the Dindoshi Court for cheating model Heer Patel. Incidentally, Rahul had also gone missing after he took Pratyusha to the hospital where she was declared dead.
Pratyusha’s father, Shankar Banerjee said at the press conference, “We are extremely unhappy with the way the police is conducting the probe in our daughter’s death. They do not keep us informed and besides that, they are going easy on the one who is responsible for her death. It is because the police are siding with him that Rahul could disappear like this. The cops do not keep us in the loop about the developments in the case and even the charge sheet has not been shared with us.”
“We weren’t informed before the police opened the house that Pratyusha lived in, even though we were promised otherwise. We have been trying to meet the Mumbai Police Commissioner for quite some time now in this regard, but to no avail,” he added.
The parents stood by their earlier claim that the’s 24-year-old daughter did not commit suicide but was murdered.
Her father said, “My daughter was murdered, yet it is constantly looked as a suicide case. Even Saloni Sharma, Rahul’s ex-girlfriend is involved in the crime, but she is only interrogated as a witness and not as an accused.”
Rahul was asked to present himself in the court after the police submitted the charge sheet with abetment, assault, and intimidation in the Borivali court. However, with his recent disappearance, his presence on Saturday is doubtful.
A source from the police had said, “A police team went to his apartment to search for him but the door was locked and Singh was not found there. We are on the lookout for him.”
However, Pratyusha’s family is planning to have a look at the charge sheet now before taking any further step.
Shankar said, “We will look into the charge sheet once the police share it with us and see how the police have investigated the case before deciding on our next step.”
