Bollywood actress arrested over actor Kunal Singh’s murder
Bollywood actress Laveena Bhatia has been named as the main suspect in a murder investigation into the death of actor Kunal Singh. She has subsequently been arrested and is being questioned over the incident.
Actor Kunal Singh’s death was initially reported as suicide after he was discovered hanging in his rented flat in Mumbai on February 7th in 2008. However the case was re-opened after Kunal’s father took a petition to the High Court to call for the police to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of his son. The actor’s father claims that when he received Kunal’s body from the hospital, there was evidence of injuries to his neck and arms that suggested he had been murdered.
Kunal Singh was an up and coming actor and had appeared in a number of Bhojpuri movies and a Bollywood film. Laveena Bhatia had co-starred alongside Singh in the movie Yogi and the pair were said to be friends. The actress is under suspicion as she was in Singh’s flat at the time of his death. Bhatia claimed that she came out of the bathroom to find Singh’s body hanging from a ceiling fan.
Kunal Singh’s father believes his son was murdered and that the marks he found on his body indicate that he may have been strangled. He believes Singh’s body was then suspended from the ceiling fan to make the death look like suicide. The investigation continues.
