Bidisha Bezbaruah’s sudden death has shocked her fans across the country. Reports suggest that the female actor, who had been part of the recently released Bollywood blockbuster, Jagga Jasoos, allegedly committed suicide in an upscale apartment in New Delhi’s twin city of Gurugram.
The actress, who is also a well-known singer, and who performed on stage was reportedly found dead at her home that she shared with her husband. Her family members alleged that her husband, Nisheet Jha’s relationship with another woman might have led her to take the extreme step.
Her husband was later taken into custody by authorities on charges of abetting the suicide. An Indian Express report says that the actress’ family had accused Nisheet Jha of having an extra-marital affair, which had caused regular fight among the couple. They claim that his extramarital relationship might have forced the actress to take the extreme step.
Bidisha Bezbaruah used to live in Mumbai and it was very recently that the actress shifted to Gurugram.
While giving details about the suicide, Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) Deepak Saharan said, “Bezbaruah was found hanging from a ceiling fan in her rented accommodation which she had taken recently”. He added that her father informed police that his daughter had not been receiving his call.
He went on to add, “Her father suspected something foul as she was not picking the phone on Monday evening. He approached the police and gave details of her local address”. When the police reached the spot, the main gate and the door were locked from inside. The police team broke open the door and found her hanging, he said.
He further said, “The victim’s father claimed in his complaint that she had a love marriage but would often have quarrels with her husband”. Her mobile phone, Facebook and social networking site conversations are being examined by investigating teams.
