Payer meet held in Pratyusha Banerjee's memory, boyfriend Rahul Raj booked for abetment of suicide
The prayer meeting for late Pratyusha Banerjee was held at a Gurudwara in Mumabi on April 5 which was attended by her parents, close relatives and friends from the entertainment world.

The sobbing parents of Pratyusha reportedly became inconsolable at the meeting. Pratyusha's mother repeatedly said that Rahul Raj Singh should be punished severely. After the prayer meet, Pratyusha's parents Soma and Shankar Banerjee spoke to the media.

Meanwhile, the police have booked Rahul Raj for abetment of suicide, assault and intimidation under sections 306, 323 and 506 of the IPC after taking cognizance of the statements of Soma Banerjee.

Pratyusha Banerjee (1991 – 2016), 24, an Indian television actress,  had gained recognition as Anandi in the television show Balika Vadhu and had appeared in many television and reality shows.

On April 1, Pratyusha was found hanging to a ceiling fan in her flat in Mumbai.

Meanwhile, Rahul Raj Singh continues to be hospitalized in Mumbai and his first lawyer has already deserted him on 'humanitarian grounds' for concealing facts. Also, some women from the TV industry have indicted Rahul for cheating them of lakhs of rupees.

It needs to be recalled that abetment of suicide is an offence under the Indian penal code for a person is guilty of abetment when he or she instigates someone to commit suicide or is part of a conspiracy to make a person commit suicide or intentionally helps the victim to commit suicide by doing an act or by not doing something that he or she was bound to do.
