Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis requesting for a probe by Mumbai Police Crime Branch into her death Top News After the transcript of actor Pratyusha Banerjee’s last call to boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh surfaced on Friday her parents demanded a re-investigation into her alleged suicide case The transcript hints that the actor was pushed into prostitution and also mentions that she was getting death threats Indianexpresscom spoke to Neeraj Gupta the lawyer of Pratyusha’s parents about the reason behind a re-investigation and Rahul’s claims that Pratyusha’s father called her a ‘prostitute’ This is what he said 1 The demand for a fresh investigation “They did not focus on certain aspects from where they would have got evidence But they left them intentionally The chargesheet is also not proper They have only done investigation as a formality Things like the time of death and Rahul said he was with her at the time of her death His version is different from what actually transpired Also there are a few differences between what he said and what the chargesheet says Why weren’t these discrepancies investigated” Gupta said 2 The transcript reveals that Pratyusha said she is getting threats from someone Gupta said that they want a probe into the matter “The third person who Pratyusha mentions and says she is getting threats from who is that person What secrets did Pratyusha have that she was so scared” he pointed out 3 The call details hinted that Rahul was forcing her into prostitution which is why “she was tensed” Gupta added that Pratyusha’s father did not need to give any justification over Rahul’s allegation that he called his daughter a prostitute “Whatever he is saying he doesn’t have any evidence to support it He is twisting the fact If one reads the transcript it is clear who she is referring to while talking about prostitution So we don’t need to give any justification for that” the lawyer said 4 Pratyusha did not even allow her parents into her house They had no clue if she was being forced into prostitution “As far as parents are concerned the father who used to give tuitions to earn his living how would he say such a thing about his daughter Also Rahul never let them meet Pratyusha She had herself asked them not to come to her house So they did not know anything Rahul and Pratyusha used to live together and her parents used to object to his activities and then he asked her not to call them to the house” he said 5 The parents are in a state of shock after they read the transcript “They are very hurt They can’t even think something (like prostitution) People of a dignified family will never call their daughter something like that It wasn’t as if they had no money before Pratyusha started earning They brought her up so they had enough money” he said While Pratyusha’s suicide case has remained a mystery ever since her demise in April this year the latest call details have revealed some shocking things More than simplifying the investigation it has made it more complex For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsHome advantage is a recurrent theme in an India-Australia rivalry as far as men’s cricket goes The recent Test series was consumed by talk in the media of both countries about the pitches and home conditions and the rhetoric in print was bested only by the nastiness on the field Now three months later and 7500 kilometres away home advantage is providing a backdrop for yet another — but very different — India-Australia encounter India take on the defending champions Australia in the second semi-final of the ICC Women’s World Cup The encounter will take place in Derby India’s adopted home ground for the tournament where India have played four matches and won all four India put up their two best scores at Derby — 281 against England and 265 against New Zealand Australia meanwhile have never played there Indian cricketers celebrate their group stage with over Pakistan AP But conditions matter little if a team cannot make use of them as India’s men showed in the first Test against Australia at Pune So both women’s teams downplayed the location of the match and focussed on the players themselves "We know the wicket the conditions we know the outfield" said Mithali Raj "But it is also about how the team responds to the conditions on that given day… Having a home advantage is good but it is a small factor (when) playing against the best side" Form India will take more confidence from the tangibles than the intangibles Harmanpreet Kaur and Veda Krishnamurthy got runs in the last game; the pair struck their first half-centuries of the tournament when it really mattered in a virtual quarter final against New Zealand There are now six Indian batswomen with a score of at least 50 in the tournament and that will reduce the load on Raj and Smriti Mandhana who did the bulk of the scoring in the first couple of games "I can play more positively tomorrow because I am confident that the batswomen coming after me have runs and the ability to take come along" aded Raj Mandhana has been under pressure seemingly trying too hard to live up to the high expectations set after she scored almost 200 runs in the first two games Since then she has scored just 30 runs in the next five The fact that India have now scored a 250-plus total without a significant contribution from her could help her play more freely too Win the toss and… The toss is likely to be irrelevant Australia have preferred to chase after winning the toss in this tournament only choosing to bat first against Pakistan With their long batting order they have backed themselves to chase no matter the score With cloudy and chilly conditions forecast for Thursday morning Australia choosing to bowl is even more likely India have been at their best when their bowlers are defending runs on the board and they will like to have first use of the wicket no matter the cloudy conditions The wicket seemed hard and dry and there should not be too much movement after the ball loses its shine which is exactly what happened against New Zealand Biggest threat Australia haven’t really been at their best in the tournament but have still won six of their seven games Captain Meg Lanning has been nursing an injured shoulder and has been rested in a few games but that hasn’t stopped her from averaging more than 109 in partnership with Ellyse Perry The pair also starred in Australia’s last win against India both scoring half centuries Lanning has scored 328 runs in the tournament without batting in the nets; she has only been facing throw-downs Australia’s Megan Schutt celebrates the wicket of India’s Harmanpreet Kaur in their group stage match Reuters "I don’t think Lanning needs to be hitting any more balls in the nets" said Australian vice-captain Alex Blackwell on Wednesday "She’ll have no doubt about her ability to perform tomorrow" Most disconcerting for India will be the way the Australians batted against the Indian spinners in the last game They used their feet from the first ball never allowing them to settle into a rhythm Which is why Raj insisted that India will need to find a gear they have not touched before in the tournament "Obviously Australia is a very good side defending champions and a team that has been doing very well To win against them requires us to give more than we have been so far" she said Australia are favourites and they know it Having had a squad training the previous day they had only optional training on the eve of the match which was attended by only four players For the good of cricket: With 26500 tickets having already been sold a packed house at Lord’s awaits the winner of this match India’s strong start had much to do with that as did home team England reaching the final in thrilling manner With women’s cricket already well established in Australia nothing would be better for global audiences and the growth of the game than an India-England final "I would love to be a part of that atmosphere" said Raj about playing a final at Lord’s "It tempts me but I realise tomorrow is the game that can get us there and it gets me back into now that we have Australia to play" At ‘home’ India have a real chance Rajkot: High on confidence after decimating a high-profile Royal Challengers Bangalore an upbeat Gujarat Lions will be aiming to lift their game a notch higher when they face title contenders Mumbai Indians in an Indian Premier

considerable pain while batting File photo of Gujarat Lions players Sportzpics The India international will not like to miss out a match at this crucial juncture having already scored 309 runs in the tournament so far The two teams have been a study in contrast during the tournament with MI winning six out of their eight matches while Gujarat have just about managed to get across the line on three occasions For Mumbai both their defeats have been at the hands of Rising Pune Supergiant with the second one coming in their previous encounter One of the more balanced outfits with all bases covered Mumbai’s primary aim will be to get two more wins as quickly as possibly which will all but ensure a smooth passage into the Play-Offs Lions on the other hand need to win five out of their next six

to death on Sunday over a failed plot to assassinate Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina by detonating a huge bomb at one of her rallies in 2000 The men were sentenced to death by a firing squad for planting a huge explosive near where Hasina was scheduled to speak during her first term as prime minister in 2000 prosecutor Shamsul Haq Badol told AFP "The bomb was planted in an attempt to kill Sheikh Hasina high-ranking leaders of the (ruling) Awami League party and dignitaries" Badol said File image of Sheikh Hasina Reuters The 76-kg explosive was detected and defused sparking a manhunt for those

orchestrating a grenade attack on Britain’s envoy to Bangladesh in 2004 The accused in this latest case wanted to kill Hasina because "they said she was not a Muslim and an agent of India and Islam can be established (in Bangladesh) only by killing her" Badol said He said another large explosive was found three days later at a helipad where Hasina was scheduled to land A separate prosecutor Khandaker Abdul Mannan said those sentenced to death were also implicated in other assaults including a deadly bombing at a church and a secular festival Defence lawyer Faruque Ahmed said the defendants would lodge an appeal through the jail authorities "There are a lot of questions about this case The defendants said they did not get justice" he told AFP Hannan tried to kill Hasina in a separate grenade attack at a rally in the capital Dhaka in August 2004 in which 22 people were killed Badol said Hasina who was an Opposition leader at that time suffered injuries to her ear in the carnage A madrassa teacher who studied in India and Pakistan Hannan fought against the Soviets in Afghanistan before returning home to Bangladesh where he rose to prominence for a string of deadly
