No case of 'Love Jihad': Maha Police on Tunisha Sharma suicide

Palghar (Maharashtra): The Maharashtra police have ruled out any potential 'love-jihad' angle to the December 24 purported 'suicide' of actress Tunisha Sharma, days after a break-up with boyfriend actor Sheezan Khan, official sources said here on Monday.

The Mira Bhayander-Vasai Virar Police which is probing the case, arrested Khan, 27, on Sunday and he has been remanded to police custody till Wednesday on charges of abetment to suicide, with some politicians claiming a 'love-jihad' angle to the case.

During his questioning, Khan reportedly informed the investigators that he was very disturbed by the recent Shraddha Walkar-Aaftab Poonawala case and hence decided to end his relationship with Tunisha.

After the 'suo-moto' breakup, a stressed Tunisha had lapsed into depression that may have led to her taking the extreme step on the eve of Christmas.

When contacted, the MBVV's Assistant Commissioner of Police Chandrakant Jadhav declined to comment on the case and its related aspects as "the investigations are still going on".

Soon after her body was found, Tunisha's uncle Sanjeev Kaushal informed the media that almost two weeks ago, she suffered an anxiety attack and was admitted to a Mumbai hospital.


She informed him and her mother how she was wronged and cheated, and the Sharma family has demanded that the culprit responsible for the state of affairs should not be spared.

Later, Tunisha's mother said in a video-statement that Sheezan had betrayed her daughter, promised to marry her and then used her for 3-4 months before abruptly breaking up.

She accused Sheezan of cheating 'my child', and was allegedly involved with some other woman even when he was going steady with Tunisha, and demanded that the police should not spare him.

Among other things that have emerged in the police probe are that the duo had frequent quarrels, but had met for lunch on last Saturday, and hours after that Tunisha was found hanging in one of the toilets on a film set in Vasai area.

'Most beautiful man in my life'

Tunisha Sharma called her ex-boyfriend and 'Ali Baba: Dastaan-e-Kabul' co-star, Sheezan Mohammed Khan, the "most beautiful man" of her life in a post she shared on International Men's Day (November 19).

She shared a black and white picture in which both of them are seen hugging each other and all smiles, and wrote in the caption:

"Happy International Men's Day to the Man who lifts me up just like this! The most hardworking, passionate, wildly enthusiastic and the most beautiful Man in my life! You don't know what you are and that's the most beautiful part. @sheezan9"

She added:

"It is time to recognise and honour the contributions and sacrifices that a man makes for his family and society! Happy International Men's Day to all the amazing men out there!"

In another post, the actress shows off a tattoo she got done on her hand with the text:

"Love above everything".

Tunisha and Sheezan are said to have parted ways 15 days ago. Her mother has accused Sheezan of driving her into depression and finally to commit suicide.

It maybe recalled that after the body of Tunisha, 20, was found last weekend, it re-kindled stark memories of other high-profile glamour world women's suicides like Jiah Khan, Kuljeet Randhawa, Nafisa Joseph, Viveka Babaji, Pratyusha Banerjee, Vaishali Takkar, Sejal Modi, and many others that have shaken the entertainment industry in the past few years, with many rooted in depression, drugs or dead-end relationships.
