On April 1, Pratyusha Banerjee committed suicide. Her boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh, who was booked for abetment of suicide, was given an anticipatory bail by the Bombay High Court. Parents, neighbours and friends of Pratyusha cried foul play.
Disappointed by the court's decision of granting an anticipatory bail to Rahul, Pratyusha's parents had recently written to Home Minister Rajnath Singh, seeking a probe into their daughter's death by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
On May 14th, they also approached the Supreme Court requesting the cancellation of anticipatory bail given to Rahul Raj Singh. The plea was mentioned before a vacation bench of Justices AM Sapre and Ashok Bhushan. The hearing date is fixed on 30th May.
Pratyusha's mother Soma Banerjee's counsel said that Rahul should be taken into custody as the investigation is still on; if not he may tamper with the evidence. They wanted Rahul's custodial interrogation as they found several deep injury marks on Pratyusha's body.
But, Rahul had clarified that he loves Pratyusha and he hasn't done anything wrong. He even added that Neeraj Gupta, who claimed to be his lawyer, wasn't appointed at all. Rahul had also said that he would be filing a defamatory case against Neeraj and all those who spoke against him.
Rahul had also claimed that Kamya Punjabi allegedly owed Pratyusha Rs 2.5 Lakhs and that Vikas Gupta's claims of offering her work, were also false.
But Kamya clarified the fact by saying that, Pratyusha had given her Rs 2.5 Lakhs as the sponsorship amount (to promote her dad's NGO through Kamya's BCL team). And when Pratyusha gave her the money, Rahul wasn't even in her life! Kamya even added that she has been receiving death threats and Rahul is targeting her!
Well, let the truth come out soon and put an end to this. We hope that the guilty will be punished soon.
