Pratyusha Had Abortion Before Death: Docs


Mumbai: A shocking revelation adds to the mystery around Pratyusha Banerjee’s alleged suicide on April 1 2016. The doctors at the JJ Hospital in Mumbai confirmed that Pratyusha was pregnant and had an abortion a few days before her sad demise.

Earlier the doctors had stated that she was pregnant, but Pratyusha’s family and friends completely denied the news. The doctors at the JJ Hospital recently conducted a histopathological examination of the tissues from the uterus to confirm their preliminary findings. The result came out was that Pratyusha was pregnant and had supposedly undergone an abortion.

A source informed that, “The findings showed that there was a conception few days or a month before her demise, and there was a premature death of the foetal cell. The products of conception, or the placental or foetal tissue in the uterus found following delivery, termination of pregnancy or a miscarriage, were infected and degenerated. That usually hints towards a secondary infection, probably occurring due to an attempt to terminate the pregnancy.”

An expert added that since no tissues are left or they have been removed, it is very difficult to conduct a DNA test to find out the child’s parental identity.

Dean Dr TP Lahane of JJ hospital told the daily, “We cannot reveal the findings. The report has been handed over to the police.”
