It has been almost a year to television star Pratyusha Banerjee’s death, but the controversy around her suicide doesn’t seem to end. Her boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh, who is accused of abetting Pratyusha’s suicide, has registered a complaint against her close friend and actor Kamya Punjabi, accusing her of defaming him and tampering an old video of his girlfriend. And on her part, Kamya has rejected all claims and said she isn’t answerable to Rahul.

Rahul filed the complaint on Tuesday, days after Kamya tweeted a teaser of a short film featuring Pratyusha. Rahul, in his complaint, claimed that the said video is an old one and Kamya has tampered with it to gain publicity. He also wrote that she has portrayed him in a bad light in the short movie.

Kamya, on the other side, laughed off all Rahul’s allegations. When contacted, the actor told indianexpress.com, “Had there been any credibility to what he is saying, I would have got a call by the police or they would have taken some action. I don’t know why that man is giving himself so much importance. I am not answerable to him. He can say what he wants to say. People can see that it is Pratyusha in the video. He has nothing to do with the film.”

Rahul has sought an FIR and demanded an action against Kamya under the cyber law and penal code.
