Sudden news of Marathi actress Pradnya Parkar committing suicide has taken everyone by shock. The actress left a suicide note behind stating that no one was responsible for this act. She also strangled her daughter Shruti to death, before she hung herself. Pradnya was a small time actress, who had been out of work for some time now and her husband Prashant Parkar had too hit a low in his business; resulting into a worrisome situation at home, say reports. The incident took place when her husband was out for morning walk in between 8am-9am; on returning home he found out his wife and daughter were no more.
Reportedly, when he knocked the door and received no answer, he broke open the door with the help of their neighbours. That's when he found his wife hanging by the ceiling fan and daughter in the bedroom suffocated to death, say reports. The actress' daughter Shruti was a 12th grade college student, pursuing her studies in Thane college. Pradnya had worked in some TV serials and some unreleased films.
Senior inspector Shekhar Bagde who is in-charge of this case was quoted saying this during his conversation with Mumbai Mirror, “We think a financial crisis led to the murder-suicide, but a probe is under way. She said no one else should be blamed for this.”
The family resided in Gauri Suman co-op housing society located in Kalwa, Mumbai. The incident took place on Friday.
