Actor Tunisha Sharma’s last rites were performed on Tuesday at Mira Road cremation ground in Mumbai and fans, family and members of the television and film industry bid a teary farewell.
Meanwhile, the 20-year-old Tunisha committed suicide on 24 December in the washroom on the set of the television serial ‘Ali Baba Dastaan-E-Kabul’.
In Tunisha’s last rites Vishal Jethwa, Ashnoor Kaur, Avneet Kaur, and Shivin Narang were present. The last rites were attended by Sheezan Khan’s mother and sister to pay their last respects.
Earlier on Sunday Sheezan was arrested on charges of abetment of suicide. Sheezan and Tunisha were in a relationship but broke up 15 days ago.
Moreover, Tunisha’s mother claimed that Sheezan was cheating on her daughter Tunisha and based on Tunisha’s mother an FIR was registered against the actor and later Sheezan was arrested.
The court in Vasai sent Sheezan to police custody on Sunday for four days. The phones of Sheezan and Tunisha have been sent to the forensic lab.
“Mobile phones of both Tunisha and Sheezan have been sent to the forensic lab so that the calls and chats between the two can be retrieved to understand what happened between the duo and what drove Tunisha to death after 15 days after their breakup,” police said.
However, actor Sheezan sisters Shafaq Naaz and Falaq Naaz appealed for “respecting their family’s privacy”.
Taking to Instagram Shafaq Naaz and Falaq Naaz wrote, “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. Death is a painful situation everyone needs to honor 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 the 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 cooperate with the police and let the truth come out,” the statement read.
Furthermore, Tunisha was 20 year old and have worked in many TV serials like Bharat Ka Veer Putra – Maharana Pratap, Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat, Gabbar Poonchwala, Sher-e-Punjab: Maharaja Ranjit Singh, Internet Wala Love, and Ishq Subhan Allah.
