Pratyusha Banerjee’s suicide, which had stunned the showbiz world in April this year, has now revealed more details regarding what could be Pratyusha Banerjee’s last conversation with her boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh, which have just emerged. Pratyusha Banerjee reportedly had a very unpleasant conversation with her estranged boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh on phone just before committing suicide on April 1 this year. Sources have accessed a copy of the transcript of the telephone conversation between Pratyusha and Rahul. Read the complete report here.
Pratyusha’s parents’ lawyer, Neeraj Gupta, believes that the aforementioned phone call was Pratyusha’s last conversation before she ended her life by hanging herself. According to the sources, In the about three-minute long conversation she had with Singh, Banerjee, who catapulted to fame with her portrayal of Anandi in the television serial Balika Vadhu, is heard saying, “”B******d man.. I f**k so hard.. In my life i f**k so hard… for everything… I had not come here to sell myself… I had come here to act… to work. And where are you putting me today.. Rahul, you have no idea how bad I am feeling right now.”
“This conversation happened between Rahul and Partyusha just before her death. In this conversation, it is very clear that she was forced into prostitution by Rahul, as later on in the same phone call she has used the word ‘prostitution’,” Mumbai Mirror quoted Gupta as saying.
Banerjee, 24, ended her life by hanging herself at her 1000-sq ft apartment in Goregaon and Singh, who is currently out on bail, is accused of abetting her suicide. Singh, however, said that the transcripts do not reveal anything that is not known.
“She was telling me that her mom and dad wanted her to earn money anyhow, and she was complaining about them,” he said.
Towards the second half of the transcript, Banerjee is heard telling Singh, “…You are selfish… you are spoiling my name. People are talking about me… my mom and dad is termed ghatiya.”
“The police should have found out who was threatening her parents. They should have conducted a proper investigation, but they did nothing,” said Gupta, who is planning to file an application for a reinvestigation of the case.
Towards the end of the call Banerjee is heard saying, “Rahul, it’s over. I am over. Mar gayi mein (I am dead)”. Singh, who can be heard trying to reassure her, responds by reassuring her, and asking her not to “do anything”. He tells her he will be home in half an hour, upon which Banerjee responds by saying, “Everything will be over in half an hour.”
According to Singh, Banerjee’s parents and friends have falsely accused him of using her money. “She had no work. I was supporting her,” he said.
Singh found Banerjee hanging from a ceiling fan at aroud 4pm on April 1 this year, and rushed herto the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, in Andheri. He was accompanied by a cook, who worked in one of the adjacent apartments. He informed Banerjee’s parents, who live in Jharkhand, about the tragedy an hour after he found her dead. On April 5, besides being booked for the abetment of her suicide, Singh was also charged with criminal intimidation.
According to Banerjee’s friends, the actor may have committed suicide due to an extreme financial crisis, and her parents claim that Singh used to regularly beat her up. On April 8, Rahul’s anticipatory bail application was rejected by the Dindoshi court, but the Bombay High Court granted him interim protection from arrest.
