Television actress Anupama Pathak committed suicide by hanging herself at her residence at Dahisar in Bombay on 2nd August. Financial matters led her to take the extreme step. In a 10-minute video posted by her on Facebook, before she ended her life, Anupama cited two reasons for her action. One reason was that one Manish Jha had taken her two-wheeler during the lockdown in May when she was at her native place, and he refused to return the same after Anupama returned to Bombay. The second reason was that a production company, Wisdom Producer Company, in which she had invested Rs. 10,000 on a friend’s recommendation, failed to return her money in December 2019 as it was in the doldrums. In the video, she can be seen expressing her pain and telling people not to trust anyone. Anupama had also raised questions over Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicide case in a previous Facebook post on 8th July.
The police have registered a case and are investigating. Anupama Pathak had also worked in some Bhojpuri films.
