Assamese actress and singer Bidisha Bezbaruah, who recently acted in Jagga Jasoos, allegedly committed suicide on Tuesday at her flat in Gurugram. Her husband Nisheet Jha was arrested on charges of abetting the suicide, reports The Hindu. The same report also stated that the deceased’s family had accused the husband of having an extra-marital affair, which had caused discord in the family and may also have led to Bidisha’s decision.
The 30-year-old actress was a well known TV personality who had performed many stage shows as well, police said. The actress recently shifted from Mumbai to Gurgram, The Quint reported.
“Bezbaruah was found hanging from a ceiling fan in her rented accommodation which she had taken recently,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) Deepak Saharan said. He added that her father informed police that his daughter had not been receiving his call.
“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,” Saharan said. 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.
“The victim’s father claimed in his complaint that she had a love marriage but would often have quarrels with her husband,” Saharan said. Her mobile phone, Facebook and social networking site conversations are being examined by investigating teams.
“We are investigating the case and if required we will call her husband to record his statement,” Saharan said. No suicide note was recovered from her possession. Meanwhile, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has spoken to his Haryana counterpart Manohar Lal Khattar seeking a proper probe into the death.
