Jamshedpur, June 8: The signature campaign launched by parents of late TV actress Pratyusha Banerjee to garner support for a CBI probe into her unnatural death received good response as over 1000 people signed in favour of the demand today.

"Till now, more than 1000 people have signed on the banner supporting our demand for a CBI probe into the death of Pratyusha," who allegedly committed suicide on April 1 in Mumbai, her father Sankar Banerjee said.

There is no space left in the banner but people are still putting their signature on it," said Banerjee, who was accompanied by his wife Soma and other relatives.

The signature campaign began at 5 PM and was to continue till 8 PM at Bata Chowk in Sakchi market, he said expressing satisfaction over the response. Today's campaign is preceded by an online campaign today where around 700 people have already shown their support for a CBI probe.

"We have lost everything and it is now the people and media support that could help meet our demand. But if it fails to evoke any positive response, we will be left with no option but to seek euthanasia," the father of 'Balika Badhu' fame actor said.

He demanded capital punishment for Pratyusha's boyfriend Rahul Raj Singh, who, they alleged, have murdered their daughter in cold blood. Banerjee said they would meet Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das and Jharkhand Women's Commission Chairperson tomorrow at Ranchi to seek their support for CBI support to unearth the mystery behind Pratyusha’s death.

"My daughter can never commit suicide," he said. Rahul Raj Singh was booked for abatement of suicide and criminal intimidation in connection with her death.
