Ligature marks were also seen around the neck and reports further reveal that the cause of death was suffocation. The post-mortem also states that it is a ‘clear case of suicide’.
Pratyusha Banerjee, better known as Anandi for her role in popular TV serial Balika Vadhu, was found dead in her suburban home on Friday at around 5 pm. Her body was found hanging from the fan with a dupatta by Pratyusha’s boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh and their cook.
Rahul informed the police and her uncle in Borivali about the death at around 6.30 pm. She was declared dead at Kokilaben Hospital in Andheri (west) late on Friday evening. Pratyusha’s parents landed in Mumbai on Saturday morning and were taken to Siddharth hosiptal, where her body was kept.
According to reports, Pratyusha took this drastic step due to mounting financial pressures over the last year. While some friends claim that she suffered a bout of depression after she recently separated from her boyfriend of two years, others claim that the two had secretly tied the knot after their parents disapproved of their livein relationship.
