The case of Pratyusha Bannerjee’s suicide has still not been offered a resolution, and as a result, her boyfriend, Rahul Raj Singh hasn’t been offered a clean chit yet. Back in August 2023, Rahul had submitted a plea to the Mumbai session court, requesting his discharge from the case. However, according to recent reports, the court has rejected his plea for absolvement. The court, after hearing evidences from various prima facie reports, had concluded that the absence of any suicide note by the late actress, accusing him of her death isn’t a sufficient proof to clear Rahul of any charges.

In the same interview, Rahul spoke about being misrepresented on the grounds of taking money from the late actress and controlling all her finances. He mentioned that on the contrary, it was Pratyusha’s parents, who remotely controlled her finances and manhandled them. Moreover, he mentioned that due to the case, he hasn’t been able to land up on any projects and work, since the industry has sidelined him for the past seven years. An excerpt of his revelation can be quoted as:

“I haven’t taken a single penny from her. She was upset with her parents, as she felt that they used all her money. Her mother was party to every loan taken by her, and Pratyusha was inundated with abusive calls from lenders. Her parents took a huge loan in their daughter’s name to support their lavish lifestyle. I have been suffering for the past seven years. My career is on hold, as the industry seems to have sidelined me.”

When Rahul mentioned that Pratyusha often made suicide prank videos to scare him

The actor recalled how she was often depressed about her parent’s debt, and added that she would often send prank videos of suicide to scare him. He then claimed that perhaps, on that fatal night of April 1, 2016, Pratyusha's foot must have slipped while making such hanging videos, which led to such an incident.
