Sheezan Khan, arrested for allegedly abetting the suicide of his co-celebrity Tunisha Sharma, was granted bail on Saturday. A Maharashtra court granted bail to the actor in the Tunisha Sharma loss of life case on a bail bond of ₹1 lakh and has been requested to post his passport, as per a news organization. Sheezan was arrested last year in December and has been in judicial custody ever since. He was reportedly dating Tunisha, and they had broken up weeks before her alleged suicide.
A news agency tweeted on Saturday, “Television actor Sheezan Khan, accused and arrested in tv actress Tunisha Sharma’s suicide case granted bail on ₹1 lakh surety bond via Vasai court, asks Sheezan Khan to submit his passport.”
On December 24, Tunisha Sharma was determined lifeless at the set of her show Alibaba Dastaan-E-Kabul minutes after she gave a shot and spoke to her ex-boyfriend at the time, Sheezan Khan. When she did not turn up for her shot again, her colleagues broke open the restroom door and found her dead. On December 24, Waliv police arrested Sheezan on charges of abetment to suicide beneath the Indian Penal Code.
Sheezan Khan was arrested a day after Tunisha’s death. Her mother Vanita Sharma filed a case of abetment of suicide against him. Tunisha and Sheezan reportedly dated for a while last 12 months, and his circle of relatives claims that they’d had a mutual breakup simply days earlier when Tunisha was found dead. The Vasai court on December 31 had despatched accused Sheezan to 14-day judicial custody after his police custody ended; his judicial custody was then prolonged.
Tunisha’s mom Vanita had levelled allegations towards Sheezan, claiming that he used to overcome Tunisha and was forcing her to adopt Islam. However, addressing a press conference, Sheezan’s sister Falaq Naaz, accused Tunisha’s mom of “neglecting” her and said that the overdue actor’s depression was due to her youth trauma.
Sheezan’s sisters Shafaq Naaz and Falaq, his mom Kehekshan Faisi, alongwith his legal professional Shailendra Mishra, held the press conference in advance this year.
