The family of actor Pratyusha Banerjee expressed complete disbelief at the sudden demise of the young, bubbly girl they knew. The TV actor allegedly committed suicide on Friday evening.

They, however, had nothing to say about Pratyusha’s fiance Rahul Raj Singh, who is currently under the scanner for being absent at a crucial time.

Last night (Thursday) I spoke to her on the telephone at around 11-11:30 pm. I asked her when she is going to marry and she said she will earn some money and then get married. She was very happy, we cannot believe that she can commit suicide. She also told me what has she cooked for dinner.

Her relatives say the Balika Vadhu actor visited her hometown Jamshedpur on 31 January for a family function. They talked about getting her married, to which Pratyusha had reportedly replied that she wants to earn some more. Her parents declined to comment.
