Pratyusha Banerjee was pregnant, says forensic report

New Delhi: Doctors from JJ Hospital in Mumbai has confirmed that 24-year-old TV actor Pratyusha Banerjee was pregnant before her alleged suicide on 2 April.

A histopathological examination of tissues from the uterus was conducted to double check their initial findings and based on that, the doctors CONFIRMED that Pratyusha was in fact pregnant and had probably undergone an abortion.

According to Times of India reports, the ‘Baika Vadhu’ fame star may have aborted the child just before her death.

A source told TOI, “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.”

Despite the test, it will be tough for doctors to establish the child’s paternity. “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,” an expert said.

Pratyusha was found hanging at her residence on April 1.
