Every day we are switching on the news channels, reading the newspaper to know about the active number of positive cases and the death toll that is caused by Coronavirus. But the chilling reality is, people are not only suffering after coming in contact with this contagious disease but rather because of the dire impact that this Coronavirus lockdown is having on their lives.
After the death of TV actor Manmeet Grewal, another actor committed suicide.
Crime Patrol actress Preksha Mehta, hailing from Indore, committed suicide by hanging from the roof. She was residing in Mumbai from last two years and was extremely worried about not getting roles in the post-COVID-19 world. Before taking her life, she left one last message on her Instagram Account which said, “the worst is death of dreams”.
Preksha hanged herself in the night, whereas the family got to know about this in the morning. She was immediately taken to the hospital, where she was declared dead.
Not only her, but various TV actors took this path to get rid of the financial debt trap. Manmeet Grewal also took his life because of concern over repayment of his debt and he even couldn’t afford his rent and other regular expenses.
We pray that Preksha’s soul rests in peace!
