The 27-year-old singer-cum-actress from Assam, Bidisha Bezbaruah was found hanging from a ceiling fan inside her Gurgaon flat on Monday, July 17. According to the police, initial investigation suggests that the actor has committed suicide. Police arrested Bidisha’s husband Nisheeth Jha after her father accused Jha of having an extra marital affair.
According to Bidisha’s father Aswini Kumar Bezbaruah, he had called Nisheeth on Sunday and told that his daughter wants a divorce from him. Both Bidisha and Nisheeth had recently moved to Gurgaon and Bidisha joined an advertising and PR agency, where Bidisha worked as an accounts executive. Nisheeth works for AFCONS India and they tied the knock on April 28 last year.
Bidisha is a well-known figure in Assamese TV industry and according to her friends, she has worked in a recently released Bollywood movie Jagga Jasoos starring Ranbir Kapoor. She worked in a number of Assamese TV serials. She was also a playback singer. According to the police, a property dealer discovered her hanging from a ceiling fan at around 7.30 pm on Monday after Nisheeth called him and requested him to check in Bidisha’s flat, as she did not respond to his phone calls.
Police said that Nisheeth was not in the flat at that time, as he was in Mumbai for work, but they believe that Bidisha and Nisheeth had an argument over the phone before Bidisha took the fatal decision. Bidisha’s father alleged that Nisheeth had been developing interest in another woman that forced his daughter to commit suicide.
Mr Bezbaruah added that things were getting worse in the last few months and she was not happy with her married life. He added that she called him on Sunday and told that she wants divorce from Nisheeth and disconnected the call.
