Tunisha suicide case: In a major development in actress Tunisha Sharma's alleged 'suicide' case, the lawyer of the main accused actor Sheezan Khan claimed that the relations between the late actor and her family members were not "good". 

Sharma, 21, who was acting in the TV serial ‘Ali Baba: Dastaan-E-Kabul’, was found hanging in the washroom on the set of the show near Vasai on December 25. Subsequently, Mumbai Police arrested co-actor Khan for allegedly abetting the suicide of Tunisha. He is currently in 14-day judicial custody.

While addressing a press conference on Monday, the lawyer, Shailendra Mishra, claimed that Sanjeev Kaushal, who has been projecting himself as the Tunisha's maternal uncle, is not the relative of the late actor. Also, he raised serious questions about the relations between Tunisha's mother, Vanita Sharma and Kaushal. 

'Tunisha's mother and Sanjeev were controlling finances of late actress'

The lawyer alleged that both Vanita and Kaushal were controlling the finances of the late actor and added Tunisha had to take permission to spend her hard-earned money from them. "Sanjeev Kaushal is not a relative of Tunisha. So, why he is calling himself as maternal uncle of the late actress? What is the relationship between Vanita and Kaushal?" asked lawyer Mishra. He claimed that Vanita had once slapped her daughter and even tried to strangle her. 

Further, he claimed that the ongoing case is not related to 'love jihad' as her mother has been claiming ever since Tunisha committed suicide.  

Also, Mishra said that the investigating team had checked the WhatsApp chat between Sheezan and Tunisha and claimed they did not find any suspicious evidence.  

Sheezan's sister refutes religious conversion allegations

Furthermore, Sheezan Khan's sister, Falak Naazz, who is also an actor, during the presser refuted the claims of Tunisha's mother and said neither her brother nor her family members had forced her to change her religion or wear a burqa (black scarf). Also, Naazz said that the picture was circulated by media channels where she could be seen wearing a burqa was taken during a shoot.

Notably, in several media interviews, Tunisha's mother claimed that both Sheezan and his family members forced her to accept Islam. Even, Vanita claimed that Sheezan was forcing her daughter to speak in the Urdu language. 

Dismissing the claims, Naazz said that an actor has to wear a similar costume for a longer period to match the script and "this gradual change generally becomes a habit in the life of actor". "It does not mean that we were forcing her to speak in the Urdu language. You (media) people are knowing us for a long time. Our life is like an open book," said Naazz. Further, she said her family had never forced her for anything.
