Supreme Court hear a plea against Rahul Raj on May 30


New Delhi: Pratyusha Banerjee’s mother move to Supreme Court for cancellation of ancticipatory bail granted by the Bombay High Court to actor-producer Rahul Raj, accused of abetting her suicide.  The Supreme Court vacation bench, comprising Justice Abhay Manohar Sapre and Justice Ashok Bhushan, agreed to hear the plea by Soma Banarjee on May 30.

Rahul Raj Singh, who is alleged to have had a live-in relationship with Pratyusha Banerjee, has been booked under Sections 306 (abetment of suicide), 506 (criminal intimidation), and 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) of the IPC.

The actress was found hanging at her residence in Goregaon on April 1 and was rushed to a hospital by Rahul in Andheri where she was declared dead.
