Popular television actress Pratyusha Banerjee‘s sudden demise came as a rude shock to the entire nation. The suicide case has been one of the most controversial ones in the recent past and every shocking detail about the unfortunate incident has raised more and more questions. According to Times of India, JJ Hospital doctors have now confirmed that the 24-year old was pregnant and had probably undergone an abortion not long before her alleged suicide on 1st April.
A source close to the investigation told the leading daily: “The findings showed that there was a conception few days or a month before her demise, and there was a premature death of the foetal cell… The products of conception, or the placental or foetal tissue in the uterus found following delivery, termination of pregnancy or a miscarriage, were infected and degenerated. That usually hints towards a secondary infection, probably occurring due to an attempt to terminate the pregnancy.”
An expert has been quoted in the TOI report, “Since there are no tissues left or rather they were removed, it may be challenging to carry out a DNA test to establish the child’s paternity.”
