Actress suicide: Husband arrested after father complains
The husband of the deceased Assamese actress Bidisha Bezbaruah was arrested on Wednesday by Gurugram Police and the cops are claiming to investigate the case from various angles that made the artiste to commit suicide.
On Monday at 7:30 pm, the 27-year-old actress, who was also a dancer, singer and a radio jockey, was found dead in Sushant Lok Apartments at Sector-43.
Taking a serious note of the incident, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Wednesday had a discussion with Gurugram Police Commissioner and directed him to make sure that a thorough investigation be carried out.
The death of the 27-year-old who had recently shifted in the Gurugram flat, also made Assam Chief Minister Sabananda Sonowal having a word with his Haryana counterpart over the case.
To investigate the matter, the law enforcement agency has assigned Deepak Saharan DCP (east) as the Investigating Officer in the case. Bezbaruah was also seen recently in a cameo in the Bollywood film Jagga Jasoos.
Acting on the complaint filed by the actress's father at Sushant Lok Police Station on July 18, the police arrested her husband Nishith Jha from Vadodara in Gujarat and produced him in the city court on Wednesday.
In his complaint, the deceased's father mentioned that his daughter committed suicide because she used to be harassed mentally by her husband.
Jha has been charged under Section 306 (abetment to suicide) of IPC and is yet to be interrogated on his role in his wife's suicide.
Several angles are floating around in her suicide under mysterious circumstances. It is believed that that she was depressed over Nishith. who was working in a multinational company in Mumbai, having an extra-marital affair.
It is also alleged that Nishith was not very happy with her pursuing a career in Bollywood and was constantly voicing his displeasure.
Nishith and Bidisha were married on April 28 last year and the victim's family has alleged that after two months of their marriage, their relationship started developing cracks. Immediately after shifting to Gurugram in July , her husband left for Mumbai citing some professional commitments.
Rejecting the claims that his son was involved in the suicide of his daughter-in-law, SK Jha said, "A lot of useless allegations are being levelled against my son. Though minor fights are a part of any marriage, all other information relating to the death is baseless."
"We have made an arrest on a complaint and will interrogate the accused. We will make sure that our investigations will lead to justice at both ends," said Deepak Saharan DCP (East) Gurugram.
Her body was flown to her native place in Assam where it was cremated, police added.
