Her longtime boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh told police in a statement, "We used to stay in a 2 bedroom flat. We had two keys; one key was with Pratyusha and the other was with me. When I entered the bedroom, I found Pratyusha hanging from the ceiling. I got very scared. Immediately, I called the neighbours and with their help, I took her to Kokilaben Hospital. We assumed that she was alive, but she was not. I got so scared that I did not inform the police. It was the hospital authorities who informed them. After the doctor's declaration, I called up Pratyusha's family members and few of our close friends,"
She was declared dead at Kokilben Ambani hospital in Mumbai after doctors failed to revive her, this happening on the first of April many of her fans thought that it was an April Fools' joke but unfortunately it wasn't. May her soul rest in peace.
