Mumbai: In a recent development in the Pratyusha suicide case, the Bombay High Court on Monday granted interim bail to the producer-actor Rahul Raj Singh. He has been booked under the abetment and assault charges after TV starlet Pratusha Banerjee committed suicide.
Earlier, Pratusha’s parents had opposed the bail and protested outside the High Court.
On April 1, Pratyusha, who shot to fame for her role as Anandi in the serial ‘Balika Vadhu’, allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself inside her flat in suburban Goregaon, Mumbai.
An FIR was registered against the producer-actor, who was in a live-in relationship with Pratyusha after her mother Soma alleged that Rahul had abetted and instigated the suicide of her daughter.
A case under Sections 306 (abetment of suicide), 504, 506 (criminal intimidation), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) of the IPC was registered against Rahul following a complaint lodged by Pratyusha’s parents.
