Priyanka's shocking behaviour !

A shocking news that’s currently doing the rounds is that of actor-singer Priyanka Chopra. It involves the death of a member of her personal entourage. But that’s not the most shocking part. Apparently, it’s been more than a week and still the body of the member, Jiban Patra, 41, is stuck at an LA mortuary. There’s simply no funds to bring it back to India, with Chopra simply ignoring the whole issue.    It all happened when last week on their way to Vancouver, Jiban Patra, one of PeeCee’s several assistants was found dead at his Beverly Hills hotel room in LA. It seems Jiban could not obtain a Canadian visa and had to stay back in the LA hotel, where his body was discovered on April 7.  The local police registered a case of unnatural death citing the reason for death as heart attack. But, inspite of them giving a clearance for the body to be brought back to India, nothing has happened yet. According to the sources the biggest hurdle, it seems, is the cost of transporting the body ($15,000). And no one including PeeCee is ready to pick up the tab, yet. While PeeCee remained unavailable for comment, a source close to her said that her manager has been in touch with the Indian Embassy to try and work out a solution.   A source from the US said, “Jiban has two kids and a wife back in Mumbai and they have been in constant touch with Priyanka Chopra's office to arrange for his body to be brought back home. But nothing has worked out so far. The death was also hush-hush till the Indian community took it up strongly and put pressure on Priyanka to arrange for Jiban’s passage to India. It is a tragic case as he is the only earning member of the family and lost his father to heart attack last year."  Meanwhile, the Oriya community (Jiban is from Orissa) in the US has started a fund in his name to expedite the passage. Their online community even put up a message, “We are requesting Priyanka Chopra’s team to take the responsibility to send the body to Orissa. The family at India was helpless and no one speaks English/Hindi.”
