Pratyusha's family lawyer said, "Court rejected Rahul Raj's bail plea. It's abetment of suicide or murder yet to be probed.”

In a press conference, Pratyusha’s mother said: “Hamein pura pura shaq hai ki use maara gaya hai (I suspect she has been killed)."

ctor-producer Rahul Raj Singh, against whom a case has been lodged for abetment of his girlfriend and TV star Pratyusha Banerjee's suicide, on April 6, has been rejected. According to reports, Rahul can only be arrested after being out of the hospital.

Doctors attending on Rahul said that "he still has suicidal tendencies."

"I cannot leave him now because he can do anything. He is still on medication and becomes violent when effect of medicine wanes," Dr Santosh Goel, said, adding that he is under depression and at times calls out to Pratyusha.

Rahul was admitted to hospital after he complained of breathing problem and chest pain on the second day of police interrogation.

Pratyusha’s mother Soma registered a case against Rahul at Bangurnagar Police Station. A case under IPC sections 306 (abetment of suicide), 504, 506 (criminal intimidation), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) of IPC has been registered against Rahul.

Meanwhile, Rahul appointed a new player after his previous lawyer Neeraj Gupta walked out of the case  saying he was "kept in the dark" about the details pertaining to the case. "I withdrew from the case on humanitarian grounds. I felt that I shouldn't be fighting the case, and hence left it be so that injustice is not done to anyone," Gupta told PTI.

"A client should pass on all the information, right or wrong, good or bad, to the lawyer, but I was kept in the dark and got all the details (pertaining to the case) from outside (media)," Gupta claimed.

Asked if he changed his mind after the FIR was filed against Rahul, he said, "The FIR has nothing to do with the decision. A lawyer is always prepared for such things."
