Balika Vadhu and Bigg Boss ex-contestant Pratyusha Banerjee's death case is taking a new turn with each passing day. Recently, Pratyusha's boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh, who was booked for amendment of suicide, was given interim bail by the Bombay High Court.
This did not go well with the actress parents who feel the case has not been investigated properly by the allotted officials. The actress' mother, Soma Banerje had recently written a letter to the Chief Minister, Home Minister and the Police Commissioner of Mumbai, appealing to transfer the case to the Crime Branch.

Pratyusha's mother was quoted by a leading website as saying, "We have a suspicion that she has been murdered by Rahul... He has also been threatening us and the witnesses." She felt that instead of seriously investigating the matter, the police was giving a free hand to the accused to destroy the evidence.
The Minister of State (Home) Ranjit Patil said the police administration will have to bear the consequences if their work was not found proper.
Patil was quoted by PTI as saying, "We have received the letter and have asked police officials to take up the case on a high priority basis. If the need be, we do not mind transferring the case to the Crime Branch."
He further added, "I have myself spoken to the concerned police officials and have told them that a letter from Pratyusha's mother means that her parents are not happy with the investigation and more needs to be done."
Rahul, who is undergoing treatment for depression, has been given interim protection from arrest till April 18.
