‘Seems like murder to me’ says Pratyusha Banerjee’s father on Tunisha Sharma’s death


New Delhi: Tunisha Sharma’s recent death has opened a lot of wounds as unexplainable suicides continue happening. Pratyusha Banerjee’s death by suicide in 2016 at the age of 24 was a similar mysterious suicide case that left some unanswered questions. Since both Prayusha and Tunisha worked in the same industry, many people have linked their deaths in the past few days trying to see a pattern. Pratyusha’s father had some things to say about the same in his interview with Aajtak, the highlight being his finding Tanisha’s death “100% a murder case”.

Late Actor Pratyusha Banerjee’s father Shankar Banerjee said that it really disheartened him to learn about Tanisha’s death. He then offered his condolences to Tanisha’s mother, Vanita Sharma saying being a father himself, he can understand her pain. Remembering his own daughter he said learning about Tanisha’s death freshened his old wounds and made him very sad.

The part getting the most attention in his interview was his saying that Tanisha’s death looked like a murder to him. He drew a pattern that most of us have been seeing, mentioning how all murders in recent years have been covered as suicides. Saying that a similar thing happened with Sushant Singh Rajput, he brings forward the point that a person committing suicide will leave a note behind for their loved ones. And since there was no note explaining her suicide, it was 100% a murder case. Crying with his wife over the news of Tanisha’s death he mourned Vanita’s loss he mentioned to Aajtak.
