Mumbai, July 21 (ANI): The Mumbai Police on Thursday filed a chargesheet against Pratyusha Banerjee's boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh for abetting her suicide.

As per reports, the chargesheet of around 1,000 pages has been slapped against Rahul on charges of abetment, assault and intimidation.

A case was earlier registered at the Bangur Nagar Police Station under Sections 306 (abetment of suicide), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The Bombay High Court had on April 25 granted anticipatory bail to Rahul after observing that prima facie there was not enough evidence to show that the accused "instigated or intended" the suicide.

The 24-year-old former 'Balika Vadhu' actress was found dead at her home on April 1 in a suspected case of suicide due to a stress in her relationship with boyfriend Rahul. (ANI)
