Dubai – ‘Jagga Jasoos’ actress Bidisha Bezbaruah found dead in her flat and Police say her husband has been booked for abetment following a case filed by her family.
The husband of Assamese actress Bidisha Bezbaruah, who allegedly committed suicide in Gurugram, Haryana, on Monday, has been booked for abetment, a police officer said on Tuesday.
“As per the complaint filed by deceased relatives, the case has been filed against her husband under IPC’s Section 306 [abetment to suicide],” Gurugram police PRO Ravinder Kumar said.
He said that a case has been registered and several police teams have been probing the death of the victim, whose body has been handed over to family members after a postmortem examination.
Deputy Commissioner of Police, East, Deepak Saharan is heading the probe, the PRO added. Bezbaruah, a 27-year-old singer-actor from Assam, was found dead inside her ninth floor Gurgaon flat.
“Bezbaruah was found hanging from a ceiling fan of her recently acquired rented apartment,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Deepak Saharan was quoted as saying by the Hindustan Times.
“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,” he added.
Bezbaruah’s husband, Nisheeth Jha, was accused by her father, Aswini Kumar Bezbaruah, of having an extra-marital affair. Earlier the same evening, Aswini said she had called him to say that she would seek a divorce. The couple got married on April 28 last year.
Bezbaruah, who made a fleeting appearance in Jagga Jasoos, was a well-known actress in the Assamese TV industry, where she acted in serials and was also a singer.
