Mumbai, Nov 26: The Mumbai police has reportedly arrested struggling Bollywood actress Lavina Bhatia in connection with the 2008 murder case of south Indian actor Kunal Singh.
Kunal Singh was found dead in his Versova flat on Feb 6, 2008. Since the actor was found hanging from the ceiling, the police had concluded that it was a suicide and closed the case.
However, in Aug 2008, Kunal Singh's father Col Rajendra Singh approached the Bombay High Court and filed a petition stating that the his son did not commit suicide. In response to this, the court ordered the police to re-investigate the case.
Col Rajendra was confident that the death was not a suicide due to the injury marks he found on his son's chest and arm leading him and the doctor, who conducted the post-mortem, to believe that the actor was first strangulated and then hung from the ceiling to make it look like a suicide.
Kunal's co-star Lavina who claims to have been in the wash room of the rented flat at the time of the death, has been arrested by the police and remanded in police custody till Thursday, Nov 26.
