More than a month after Pratyusha Banerjee’s death, boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh has asserted his innocence and said he wants the truth behind the actor’s suicide to come out. Pratyusha committed suicide on April 1 in her apartment; Rahul was booked for abetment a few days later.

“I have not done anything wrong. I love her,and I am going to live with her memories forever,” Rahul said. He is out on anticipatory bail at present. “I’ll speak when truth is out. I don’t want to prove anything,” he added.

He said he still can’t believe Pratyusha is gone. “I lost my baby. She is my life. I want justice. And truth will come out one day. My motive of living now is my Pratyusha. I love her way too much. It’s still hard to believe she is not there with me, that I can’t talk to her,” said Rahul.

Rahul is confident he will be proved innocent. “I am just waiting for the truth to come out. Truth always prevails. Sometimes it takes a little longer.I can wait,” he said.

On April 1, Pratyusha was found hanging from the ceiling fan of her house by her boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh, a television actor and producer. In the absence of a suicide note, there is no clear indication of what drove the 24-year-old to end her life.

While Pratyusha’s mother has pressed charges of abetment to suicide against Singh, accusing him of abusing her, cheating on her and taking money from her, Singh and his family have in turn alleged that Pratyusha was depressed due to a financial crunch. The actor had been unable to achieve the same kind of popularity after quitting Balika Vadhu in 2013 and was last seen in the reality show Power Couple in 2015.
