Kolkata: Semi-decomposed body of Bengali actor found in her apartment

A semi-decomposed body of Bitasta Saha, an actor of the Bengali entertainment industry, was recovered from her flat in the southern part of the Kolkata’s Kasba area on Wednesday.



28-year old Saha’s semi-decomposed body was found hanging from the ceiling of her house, Press Trust of India reported as police saying.

Bitasta's mother visited the apartment when the repeated phone calls had gone unanswered for almost two days, on Wednesday where the actress used to stay alone.


When Bitasta did not open the door after several knocks, her mother and neighbours informed the police. Police broke the door and found the actress’s body hanging from the ceiling, a police officer said.

Bitasta’s wrist was slit and there were several injury marks on her body too. “Going by the preliminary signs it seems that she committed suicide. However, we are waiting for the postmortem report. The body appeared to be two-day-old and there was a bit of stench in the room,” police said.

Police claimed the actress was under severe stress for quite some time which could be a reason behind the incident.
“We have gone through her Facebook profile and posts and found quite depressing posts on her wall... In fact, at one point she had also talked about putting an end to her life. We are checking everything including her call details,” police added.
