Suicide is an act of insanity or madness and one does feel sorry for Pratyusha Banerjee who killed herself by hanging which must have been due to deep depression as well as stress levels she was facing in an troubled relationship. However, her live-in-partner now being charged for abetment of her murder comes as a surprise. A matured adult should know when to come out of such an relationship and one really doubts if such allegations by the cops can hold good in the higher courts due to lack of evidence or otherwise.
Education and counselling is the need of the hour and killing oneself is an cowardice act as well as revolt against the Almighty who is responsible for your creation. People should take the help of the law or the doctors when it comes to such incidence of abetment. Women deserve all the respect and let us empower them with knowledge and education so that they hit back strongly to those who create a furore in their life than succumbing to temptation of suicide when under bouts of depression. Also, we need to have special court’s and police stations for the fair sex so that they don’t need to run from pillar to post to file complaints of harassment which leads them to depression when their problems are not heard or addressed!
