Rahul Raj Singh To Sue Kamya Panjabi And Vikas Gupta For Blaming Him
Five years after being blamed for abetting his ex-girlfriend, Pratyusha Banerjee’s suicide, Actor Rahul Raj Singh broke his silence on the case and came out in the open to tell his part of the story. In a recent interview with Spotboye.com, Rahul blamed Pratyusha’s parents’ greed as the reason for her suicide. He also shared that he is yet to get closure on the case, but once that is done, he would file a criminal defamation case against Kamya Panjabi and Vikas Gupta, who had used her suicide to gain publicity.
While speaking to the entertainment website, Rahul Raj Singh said, “The COVID pandemic has prolonged the case much longer than it should have. I am waiting for the day when the court will clear my name. I know I am not guilty. I didn’t kill Pratyusha, her parents’ greed killed her. She was unable to satiate their endless demands. I tried to save her, not kill her.”
The actor opened up on Pratyusha’s parents. He mentioned that they are living in Mumbai but their financial condition is not good. He said, “They are in Mumbai living in shabby quarters with no income. Their golden goose is no more. They can’t go back to their hometown Jamshedpur. Everyone there knows how they exploited their daughter.”
While Rahul remembered that day when he had lost the love of his life, he could not stop himself from taking Kamya Panjabi and Vikas Gupta’s name. He added, “I can never forget that day. It is embedded in my mind, heart and soul. And the way Pratyusha’s so-called friends Vikas Gupta and Kamya Panjabi tried to pin Partyusha’s death on me… they have their conscience and God to answer. They know as well as I do that I am not guilty. They also know why they did all the tamasha.”
