Cuttack: Bollywood actor Amlan Das’ wife Bhumika Das who was rescued from drowning in the Mahanadi from Madhusudan bridge here yesterday released a video this morning, rubbishing the rumours that she jumped into river as an attempt to commit suicide over family quarrels.

“I had gone to the river to conduct a puja-related ritual. I lost my balance while wearing high-heel footwear and fell into the river. I was weak as I was fasting for the puja yesterday,” Bhumika said in the video.

She requested people with folded hands not to spread rumours by colouring the accident as an suicide attempt and not to garnish the image of her family and husband.

Notable, a case has been filed by the police suo motu in the incident.

“My wife fell accidentally into the river after her feet slipped. There is no dispute between us,” said Amlan. He expressed unhappiness over rumours being spread by certain sections of media and people.
