Even Preksha’s cousin who lives nearby spoke to TOI. She said, “Preksha was a vibrant girl since childhood, but lately she had been very quiet. Last night, the family was playing cards, but Preksha was sitting alone on the steps of the house. My chachi (Preksha’s mother) even asked her if she was okay, but she said she was fine. Around 10 pm Preksha went to her room upstairs and posted the message on her Instagram. The next morning when chachi went to wake her up for yoga, she found her room locked and called others to help open the door. Once inside, they found Preksha hanging from the ceiling fan.”
The actress’ last post on her Instagram was- ‘Sabse Bura Hota Hai Sapno Ka Mar Jana’.
