Tunisha’s mother tried to strangulate her, says Sheezan’s lawyer

Tunisha Sharma suicide case

In connection with Tunisha Sharma’s death case family of TV actor Sheezan Khan, who has been in jail since December 25 on Monday addressed the media and named an “uncle” who the late actress was in mortal fear of.

Earlier on 24 December TV actor Tunisha Sharma died by suicide and Tunisha was in frightful awe of her uncle from Chandigarh, who instigated her mother, Vanita, to strangulate Tunisha.

“Tunisha used to panic a lot upon hearing the name of Sanjeev Kaushal. At the instigation of Sanjeev Kaushal, Tunisha’s mother broke her phone and tried to strangulate her,” advocate, Shailendra Mishra said.

“Sanjeev Kaushal and Tunisha’s mother used to control Tunisha’s life,” said Mishra.

On behalf of Sheezan’s family, Mishra spoke and said Tunisha’s mother controlled her finances and for money, Tunisha used to plead in front of her mother.

Addressing the media Sheezan’s lawyer Mishra said, “Tunisha and Sanjeev Kaushal (an uncle in Chandigarh) had terrible relations. Sanjeev Kaushal and her mother, Vanita, used to control Tunisha’s finances. Tunisha often pleaded in front of her mother for her own money.”

Meanwhile, due to harsh behavior Tunisha’s “so-called uncle” was fired as a former manager.

“Tunisha’s so-called uncle Pawan Sharma was her former manager, who has fired four years ago because he used to interfere in her affairs and behave harshly with her,” Mishra said.

In connection with Tunisha Sharma’s death case, Sheezan was arrested on 25 December after Tunisha’s body was recovered from a TV set in Vasai.

Moreover, Sheezan’s sister and co-actor Falaq Naaz accused Tunisha’s mother and said due to her childhood trauma Tunisha was in depression.

“Tunisha’s mother accepted that she has been neglecting Tunisha and that she didn’t take care of her. Tunisha’s depression was due to her childhood trauma,” Falaq said.

Earlier Sheezan’s sister Falaq Naaz said they will put their side of the story in front of the media very soon.

“Sheezan didn’t have any other girlfriend. That girl was called to record her statement. There’s no secret girlfriend,” Falaq Naaz said.

Talking upon Pawan Sharma claims that Tunisha’s behavior and lifestyle changed after she met Sheezan Khan and also started wearing ‘Hijab’ Shafaq Naaz, “The picture of Tunisha in hijab being circulated is from the set of the show which was part of the shoot. It can be seen. We never made her wear hijab, it was from the channel.”

However, Tunisha’s mother Vanita Sharma earlier made various allegations against Sheezan including suspicion of “murder”.

“Sheezan took her from the room but did not call the ambulance. This could also be a murder, how is it possible that she was found in Sheezan’s room and it was Sheezan only who brought her down, but did not call the ambulance or doctors? Sheezan forced her to wear Hijab as well,” Vanita Sharma said.
