An interim relief till April 18 was granted to late TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee’s boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh on Tuesday by the Mumbai High court, after the Sessions Court rejected his bail application on April 7.
Singh, who was booked by the Bangur Nagar police for abetting Pratyusha’s suicide, had filed an anticipatory bail application, which after getting rejected by the Mumbai Sessions Court was plead to the High Court by his lawyers.
Opposing Rahul’s bail, public prosecutor Usha Kerjiwal argued that after the actress’ suicide, he went absconding and then got himself admitted to a private hospital to escape the police action.
After the 24-year-old Balika Vadhu actor allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself inside her flat in suburban Goregaon on April 1, a case under Sections 306 (abetment of suicide), 504, 506 (criminal intimidation), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) of the IPC was registered against Rahul on April 3, following a complaint lodged by the Pratyusha’s parents.
