Actor Tunisha Sharma, the lead of Sab TV’s Ali Baba Dastaan-E-Kabul died by suicide after reportedly hanging herself on the sets of the show. It was reported that she was dating the show’s co-star Sheezan Khan and they broke up 15 days before her death. Right after the death of Tunisha, Sheezan Khan was arrested under section 306 of the IPC. According to a report in TOI, Tunisha’s mother had filed a complaint against Sheezan Khan and registered a case of abetment to suicide. Now, Sheezan’s sisters Shafaq Naaz and Falaq Naaz have released an official statement on Instagram.
In the statement, they mentioned that Sheezan is cooperating with the Mumbai police and following all the procedures. She even asked everyone to give them privacy on the same.
Shafaq Naaz and Falaq Naaz’s statement:
“As much as everyone is eager to know the ‘other side of the story’, we are equally curious to know, but for time being we’d like for you to allow us privacy in this grave situation. Both families are victims at this point. Let the right time come and we will address the matter for sure. But this is not the right time. A death is a painful situation everyone needs to honour the privacy of the affected Families and give them the space to mourn and carry on with the funeral first. It is such an unfortunate state that we lost a precious soul and another is arrested. Accusations have been leveled against Sheezan and the police are investigating the case. Let police take the call. I am confident that an innocent guy has been framed without an application of mind.” This situation has been overwhelming for the family members and we’d like to take this time to co-operate with the police and let the truth come out. We have complete faith in the Indian judiciary system and hope the truth shall triumph. Also, please do not take our silence for weakness; We will speak soon when the time is right. But for now, allow and respect our privacy,” Shafaq Naaz wrote in her statement.
On the other hand, Tunisha’s mother claimed that Sheezan cheated on her. Speaking about the same, his lawyer Roopesh Jaiswal reacted to the death case and mentioned that her daughter had attempted suicide previously.
Roopesh told TOI, “It’s part of the investigation and I wouldn’t be able to divulge much. Whatever facts are there are a part of the investigation. The deceased was having symptoms of depression and had spoken about her mental health problems. Even investigation officers are aware of it. There is no religious angle to it.”
