Bombay High Court denies Sheezan Khan`s plea to quash FIR in Tunisha Sharma case
In a significant development, the Bombay High Court has rejected actor Sheezan Khan`s petition to quash the FIR filed against him in the Tunisha Sharma suicide case. Khan, the co-star of the late Tunisha Sharma, was arrested after her tragic death on the set of `Ali Baba Dastaan-E-Kabul.` The court`s decision maintains the ongoing investigation into the abetment to suicide charges filed by Tunisha`s mother.
Tunisha Sharma, known for her roles in TV shows like `Ali Baba Dastaan-E-Kabul` and `Ishq Subhan Allah,` was found dead in the washroom on the set. The case is being examined from both murder and suicide perspectives, with authorities finding no suicide note at the scene of the tragedy.
Waliv Police had earlier told a news agency that they found Tunisha dead after they broke into the toilet on sets of the TV show. She reportedly went to the washroom after the tea break and did not return. No suicide note was found at the crime scene, and the cops are now investigating the case from both the murder and suicide angles.
Just before her death, Tunisha Sharma had shared a few posts on social networking platform Instagram. She shared a small video clip on her Instagram Stories in which she was seen getting decked up for her shot on the sets. She also shared a picture of herself and wrote, “Those who are driven by their Passion Doesn’t stop.”
Having made her acting debut with Bharat Ka Veer Putra – Maharana Pratap, Tunisha had featured in several shows including Ishq Subhan Allah, Gabbar Poonchwala, Sher-e-Punjab: Maharaja Ranjit Singh, and Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat.
Apart from the TV shows, Tunisha also worked in films such as Fitoor and Baar Baar Dekho. She played the younger version of Katrina in both films. Tunisha also featured in Vidya Balan`s thriller Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh. She was also a part of Salman Khan-Sonakshi Sinha-starrer Dabangg 3. (With inputs from news agency ANI)
