TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee left many questions behind with her death. She committed suicide in 2016 and her boyfriend Rahul Raj was accused of inciting her to commit suicide and the case is still going on.
Pratyusha’s name is back in the news after a statement by TV actor-producer Vikas Gupta recently. Rahul Raj has now broken his silence on the matter and says that he will file a defamation case against Vikas Gupta and Kamya Punjabi. Describing himself as innocent, Rahul said Pratyusha died because of her parents.
As per the SpotboyE report, Rahul says the case was prolonged due to Covid-19. “I am waiting for the day when the court will give me a clean chit. I know I am not a criminal. I have not killed Pratyusha, but by the greed of her parents. She was not able to meet their unending demands. I tried to save her.”, he said.
“I can never forget that day,” says Rahul. “It has been printed on my soul, heart and mind. And the way Pratyusha’s so-called friends Vikas Gupta and Kamya Punjabi are accusing me of her death… They have to answer to God. They also know that I am not guilty. They are doing all this for publicity. They have tarnished my image without evidence. Pratyusha made the last call to me so it doesn’t prove me guilty. She never accused me of anything. All her grief and anger was because of his parents. I even got the bell because of that last call.”
“As soon as my name is cleared in the Pratyusha case, I will file a criminal defamation case against Vikas Gupta and Kamya Punjabi,” says Rahul. “They have ruined my life and my career.”
Vikas Gupta had said in the past that Pratyusha was in a relationship with him. Rahul Raj has also vented his anger on this. He says Vikas is using a dead person for publicity.
