Soma and Shankar Banerjee’s advocate, Neeraj Gupta, gave details of the three-minute telephonic conversation between Pratyusha Banerjee and Rahul, to the daily. Gupta has claimed that Rahul Raj Singh forced Pratyusha Banerjee into prostitution here in Mumbai, as a result of which she got frustrated and committed suicide.
In the recorded text, Pratyusha is recorded as telling Rahul Singh that “I had not come here to Mumbai to sell myself… I had come here to act, to work. And where are you trying to put me today? Rahul.” She added, “you have no idea how bad I am feeling right now.”
In the later part of the conversation, Pratyusha Banerjee is recorded as having told Rahul Raj Singh: “You are very selfish, you are spoiling my good name, People are talking about me”. In this same conversation, Advocate Neeraj Gupta says, Pratyusha Banerjee includes the word “prostitution”, clearing the smog that she was forced into prostitution by Rahul.
Pratyusha Was Forced For Prostitution By Her Boyfriend Rahul, But Why?
Rahul Raj Singh has earlier said that their last telephonic conversation was about an upset Pratyusha complaining about her parents that they wanted her ‘to earn money anyhow’. Advocate Neeraj Gupta is filing an application for Pratyusha’s death to be re-investigated. 24 year old Pratyusha Banerjee was found hanging from the ceiling of the flat she shared with her boyfriend Rahul on 1 April 2016.
Rahul Raj Singh, whom Pratyusha‘s parents claimed of being abusive towards their daughter, was booked for abetment of suicide. When the Rahul applied for anticipatory bail on 8 April 2016, the petition was rejected by the court. Later, the Bombay High Court granted him interim protection from arrest.
