Actress Tunisha Sharma (20) who has worked in movies like Fitoor and television series Alibaba: Dastan-e-Kabul, passed away after she committed suicide on December 24. Her unfortunate death sent shockwaves among her colleagues in the television industry and her fans. The suicide of this young artist stunned the entire nation.
However, the mother of the deceased actress accused her former boyfriend and co-star Sheezan Khan of abetment to suicide. Following her complaint, the Mumbai Police have taken Khan into custody.
In the light of these developments, several theories about why Tunisha was forced to take such a drastic step started surfacing on social media. Some even alleged that there is an angle of Love Jihad in the incident. Some also claimed that Sheezan got Tunisha pregnant and then refused to marry her that led to her suicide.
In the tweet, we can see a screenshot of a report by a website filmibeat.com that claims Tunisha Sharma was pregnant and her boyfriend refused to marry her. This report formed the basis of allegations of Love Jihad leveled by the Twitter user.
However, Tunisha was not pregnant at the time of her death. Let us see what Police had to say when they were asked about this rumor.
Mumbai Police is investigating the case of Tunisha Sharma’s suicide. ACP Chandrakant Jadhav who is investigating the case held a press conference yesterday and briefed the media about the case. He said that the police has arrested Sheezan Khan on the charges of abetment to suicide based on the complaint by Tunisha’s mother. He said that, “Tunisha and Sheezan worked together for a serial called Alibaba: Dastaan-e-Kabul that airs on Sony TV. During the shooting Tunisha and Sheezan became friends and later their friendship blossomed into love. 15 days ago, Sheezan broke up with Tunisha and this led Tunisha to commit suicide by hanging herself in the restroom. Based on Tunisha’s Mother’s complaint, we have registered a case against Sheezan in Waliv Police Station under section 306 of IPC. The accused was presented in the Vasai court today and the court has granted us 4 days custody of the accused.”
While answering questions of journalists, ACP Jadhav said, “From Autopsy it is clear that the cause of death is by hanging.” When asked whether she was pregnant, ACP Jadhav said the Autopsy showed no pregnancy. He also denied any angle of Love Jihad. He said, “Investigation so far has not revealed any angle of Love Jihad or Sheezan having an affair with another woman.”
Mumbai Police has clarified that Tunisha Sharma was not pregnant. Her autopsy revealed that she was not pregnant when she committed suicide. Police also said that they have found no angle of Love Jihad so far.
