Parents of actress Pratyusha Banrjee, who was found dead in her house in April, are seeking a re-investigation of her death on the grounds that police overlooked several aspects of the case, their lawyer said.

The development comes after a purported transcript of Banerjee’s ‘last’ telephonic conversation with her boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh surfaced on Friday.

“Name of a third person has come up in the telephonic conversation where Pratyusha is saying he was giving her life threats. Who is this person and why is he giving threats to Pratyusha, why police ignored this fact?... As of now we don’t have entire charge sheet. Once we get it, we will study the documents and file a fresh application on Monday,” said Neeraj Gupta, who is represents Banerjee’s parents.

The police also didn’t look properly into Pratyusha’s blood and viscera reports, Gupta added.

Pratyusha, who shot to fame as Anandi in the TV serial ‘Balika Vadhu’, was found dead at her house on April. Police registered a case of abatement of suicide against Singh, who secured an anticipatory bail.
