Tunisha Sharma death: Accused Sheezan Khan, who has been placed in judicial custody for allegedly abetting the suicide of his Ali Baba: Dastaan-E-Kabul co-star Tunisha Sharma, will continue to be in jail. His bail application in the matter was rejected by Vasai Court on Friday. At the hearing, the lawyer representing Tunisha's family had opposed the bail application of Sheezan pointing out that he was being evasive during questioning by the police. After hearing arguments from both sides, the court judge has not granted bail to Sheezan.

Sheezan Khan 'drove' Tunisha to commit suicide
Inside the Court, Tunisha Sharma's lawyer said that Sheezan Khan drove her to commit suicide. He argued that he lied to her about many things when they were in a relationship. After their breakup, Tunisha was broken and she took the extreme step of taking her own life. "All the photos found are found on Tunisha's Instagram. Nothing has been found on Sheezan's Instagram handle. It means Sheezan didn't love her. He was just using her," lawyer Tarun Sharma said in Court.
