Pratyusha Banerjee, the well-known television actress, who committed suicide last week left the entire television industry in deep shock. Almost everyday, there is some or the other twist creeping up in the sensational suicide case.

A fan of Pratyusha from Raipur, Madhu Mahanand (26), who has been following the news from day 1, was so disturbed that she too hanged herself from the ceiling fan. Madhu, a housewife was following each and every detail of the news closely. She could not bear the shock and hanged herself in front of her two-year-old son in Ram Nagar locality of Raipur on Thursday.

Pratyusha was Madhu's favourite actress and was in depression from April 1. She did this in a locked room, when and where her only son was present.

When her husband came back home from office that evening, he heard his son crying unstoppably. He rang the doorbell multiple times but none answered and ultimately when he broke the door, he found his wife hanging and his son crying next to the hanging body.
