However, Pratyusha’s parents have alleged that the hospital authorities are involved with Rahul and are saving him from police interrogation.
“We think all of them have taken money from Rahul to give him protection and get him bail on medical grounds,” said Pratyusha’s father in a letter he sent to the Indian Medical Association.
Refuting the allegations, Dr Santosh Goel, who runs Shri Sai Hospital in Kandivali, said, “He (Rahul) is still in depression and seriously unwell.”
