According to sources, the event happened as the actress, her husband Prakash Kumar, and their 3-year-old daughter was travelling from Ranchi to Kolkata.
NEW DELHI: Isha Alya, an actor from Jharkhand, was allegedly shot dead by snatchers early on Wednesday morning on National Highway 16 in Howrah, West Bengal, according to police. The event happened as the actress, her husband Prakash Kumar, and their 3-year-old daughter was travelling from Ranchi to Kolkata.
A police investigation has been opened as a result of Kumar's complaint. In order to reenact the incident, the detectives also interrogated Kumar and took him to the crime scene. Police are also getting video from a CCTv set up in a nearby factory that is near the crime scene.
"The allegation states that the family was driving their automobile toward Kolkata. Around six in the morning, they came to a barren location where Kumar felt compelled to return to nature. Attacking them were three snatchers. Alya was shot at point-blank range while she attempted to struggle, a police officer reported.
She was well-known for her acting in Jharkhand. Although her real name is Riya Kumari, she goes by the stage name Isha Alya, said Kumar, who identified himself as a film director. There were three criminals, the complainant claimed. When Kumar got down to attend to his natural needs, they attacked him.
"Our daughter was riding in the car with my wife. My wife stopped to try to fight off the thieves when they tried to steal my wallet. According to Kumar, she was shot. Locals claim that because the region was barren, Kumar drove down around two kilometers to look for assistance. Alya was pronounced dead at the Uluberia hospital after the victim was taken there urgently.
