Pratyusha Banerjee death: Five shocking things Saloni Sharma said about Rahul-Pratyusha


Pratyusha Banerjee death

Saloni Sharma, the reported ‘other woman’ in Rahul Raj Singh’s life has been accused of threatening Pratyusha with a knife and assaulting her. The actress who has given her statement to the Police a few days back in this regard, finally gives her version to the media.

In an interview with TOI, Saloni admitted that she had assaulted Pratyusha and her boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh, but she said it was in retaliation after she was hit by them first. The actress claimed that she visited their flat to ask for her dues from Rahul. She also said that she was in relationship with Rahul when he started seeing Pratyusha without her knowledge. Here’s five shocking things she said in the interview.

1. “Rahul wasn’t paying me back… I landed there to ask for dues”

“I was done with them and was trying to move on but it was my money (that she had given Rahul to run an event management firm) I was concerned about. Rahul wasn’t paying me back… It made me angry and I landed there to ask for my dues. On seeing me, Pratyusha and Rahul both assaulted me and physically kicked me out of the flat. I was hysterical and refused to leave the premises. So they came down and that’s when I hit them back out of utter humiliation,” said Saloni, who also filed a case against Rahul and Pratyusha with the Bangur Nagar police station, but later withdrew it, apparently on Rahul and Pratyusha’s request.

2. “Rahul and I had been together for five years”

“I’ve been called the ‘other’ woman and held responsible for Pratyusha and Rahul’s relationship turning sour but not many know that Rahul and I had been together for five years. Pratyusha came into his life 10 months ago and they started seeing each other without my knowledge,” Saloni said.

“Rahul had an events management company and wanted me to come on board. Afterwards we launched another company. We started out as business partners and then got into a relationship. Over the years I’ve invested over Rs 30 lakh in the business. Details of all the monetary transactions have been given to the police.”

3. “Pratyusha asked me to leave Rahul”

“So I decided to confront him at his Veera Desai Road flat in July. He denied it but Pratyusha who happened to arrive just then asked me to leave him and the company. I left feeling confused and very disturbed. Rahul called me the next day, apologised and wanted me to ignore everything.”

4. “I saw them declare their marriage plans on television…I was stunned”

“Another month went by and I was in denial about their relationship, until suddenly I saw them declare their marriage plans on television during Pratyusha’s birthday party on August 10. I was stunned and landed at his house the next day. Rahul refused to let me in and instead, he called my father asking him to take me away. My father came over and met Rahul, Pratyusha and her parents who were all present at the flat. On being told of their wedding plans, my father informed Pratyusha and her parents of the money he owed us and warned them that Rahul could do the same to their daughter like he had just done to me,” she said.

5. “I’m heavily in debt now”

Saloni then quit the company following this despite her hefty investment in the business that according to her included her own earnings and also her father’s.

“I’m heavily in debt now and have people calling me everyday to repay loans, EMIs and interests,” said Saloni whose father too recorded his statement with the police on Saturday.
