J Hospital doctors confirmed on Monday that TV actor Pratyusha Banerjee, 24, was pregnant and had probably endured an abortion not long before her supposed suicide on April 2. The disclosure, made on the basis of a histopathological examination of tissues from the uterus, may add another turn to the case.
A source close to the investigation told,
“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.”
The “Balika Vadhu” actress was found hanging from a fan in her residence. Pratyusha Banerjee‘s sudden demise came as a rude shock to the entire nation.
