NEW DELHI: Justice Mridula Bhatkar of the Bombay High Court, during today’s hearing on actress Pratyusha Banerjee death case, has decided to hear three-minute recording of her last call with Rahul Raj Singh.

The public prosecutor claimed that the late actress hinted her suicide during her last call with beau Rahul.

According to a leading daily’s report, the ‘Balika Vadhu’ actress was under the influence of alcohol while committing suicide.

This new development came into the picture after the Bangur Nagar police station on Friday received the forensic chemical analysis by the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL), Kalina.

Reportedly, the 24-year-old actress was in debt and used to often remain under the influence of alcohol.

An FIR was registered against the producer-actor, who was in a live-in relationship with Banerjee after her mother, Soma alleged that Singh had abetted and instigated the suicide.

On April 1, Pratyusha, who shot to fame for her role as Anandi in 'Balika Vadhu', allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself inside her flat in suburban Goregaon.

Two days later, a case under IPC Sections 306 (abetment of suicide), 504, 506 (criminal intimidation), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) of IPC was registered against Rahul following a complaint lodged by the actress's parents.
