Mumbai police on Tuesday filed an abetment of suicide and assault case against Pratyusha Banerjee’s boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh.
Now the latest update on the case is Rahul Raj’s lawyer backs out saying that he was kept in the dark.
Rahul Raj’s lawyer Neeraj Gupta alleged that Rahul and his family kept him in the dark about the case. “I withdrew from the case on humanitarian grounds. I felt that I shouldn’t be fighting the case, and hence left it so that injustice is not done to anyone,” Rahul’s lawyer Neeraj Gupta told PTI here today.
“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.
Replying to a query on whether he changed his mind after the FIR was filed against Rahul, he said, “The FIR has nothing to with the decision. A lawyer is always prepared for such things.”
According to reports, the case has been filed on the basis of statements made by Pratyusha’s family and friends.
Earlier reports claimed that Rahul is under severe depression and his medical condition has worsened over the time.
He was admitted to Shree Sai Hospital in suburban Kandivali on Sunday after he complained of chest pain and low blood pressure.
Balika Vadhu actress Pratyusha was found dead at her home in Mumbai on April 1, 2016, in a suspected case of suicide.
Many of her friends claimed that Rahul was cheating on Pratyusha.
Later they also claimed to reveal the details of their messy relationship.
