Gurgaon (DLF): Tollywood actress Meera Chopra, who is alleged to have played a significant role in Ruchi Bhuttani’s death, came under scanner when her Model town house was raided by police on Sunday. However, the police failed to recover any important piece of evidence against her in the mysterious death case.

Attacking the police for the slipshod attitude, Ruchi’s sisters said that she will approach the Director General of Police of Haryana, Ranjiv Singh Dalal for a thorough probe in her sister’s murder.

“Gurgaon police is quite negligent in its approach and is unable to collect evidences against the accused Meera Chopra and Sumit Bhuttani,” Preeti, one of the sisters of Ruchi alleged.

She added that in order to pursue the police for speedy probe in Ruchi’s death, the family and relatives will take out a candle march on July 24 at Jantar Mantar in the national capital.

Ruchi, who committed suicide on June 28, cited troubled marriage as a reason for death in her personal diary. Ruchi’s husband Sumit is also under the police scanner.

Sumit admitted his wife Ruchi to Max Hospital saying that she had attempted suicide. The hospital staff, however, announced that she was brought dead. Later, when her relatives arrived at the hospital they found Sumit absconding.

According to Ruchi’s mother, “Sumit had an affair with Meera Chopra before marrying off her daughter. Everything was going smoothly after the marriage, but after some months he again got in touch with Meera, which led to frequent brawls between the husband and wife.”

She also revealed that on the night of her daughter’s death, both had a fight and ultimately Ruchi was strangulated to death. Later, Sumit hanged her to hide his crime.

In a court proceeding, it was also known that the main accused Sumit Bhuttal and Meera Chopra were relatives and knew each other since childhood.
