Rich actress forced to borrow money from maid

Rich actress forced to borrow money from maid

TV actor Pratyusha Banerjee, who reportedly committed suicide, is said to have frequently borrowed small sums of money from her maid for buying medicines or to hire a cab.

Renu Sinha, who worked for Pratyusha for three months and lived in the same house, said she had seen bruises suffered by the actor after fights with fiancee Rahul Raj Singh.

"I grew close to Pratyusha after her mother was packed away from Mumbai since Rahul did not like her presence in the house. Pratyusha's mother had asked me to keep an eye on her daughter. She used to call me 'didi," said Sinha.

"At odd hours in the night, I used to hear raised voices from the couple's room. I wanted to rescue Pratyusha but didn't know if it was right to interfere in a private matter between them.

"Whenever Rahul left home, I would coax Pratyusha into telling me everything. She spoke of Rahul accusing her of having an affair with her former boyfriend," added Sinha.

Sinha had suggested to Pratyusha on a number of occasions that she walk out of the relationship.

"Pratyusha hailed from a middle-class family in Jamshedpur and she believed that her broken relationships would bring disrepute to her family.



"I would ask her to take control over her finances and ask Rahul to return her passbooks and debit card. But she said she couldn't do it for some reason," Sinha said.

"I was also a witness to the incident where Rahul's ex-girlfriend stormed into the flat and hit the couple, raining choicest of abuses," said Sinha.

"Pratyusha gradually learnt of Rahul's past including his previous marriage. She was terrorised by Rahul. He wouldn't let her do things she loved, like eating out and watching movies. He kept postponing plans to tie the knot with her," said Sinha.

Sinha also raised a doubt over someone as petite as Pratyusha being able to reach the ceiling fan to tie a noose when there was no stool in the house.

Speaking to media, Raj Baria, a driver who worked for Rahul, said his ex-girlfriend was present at Kokilaben Ambani Hospital on the night that Pratyusha's body was wheeled in.

"She disappeared first, followed by Rahul. He also switched off his cellphone," Baria said. According to the driver, Rahul had slapped Pratyusha at a mall on one occasion.

Booked on abetment charges, Singh remains hospitalised and is in depression, according to his doctors.
