Tunisha death: Police to produce accused Sheezan Khan in court
The Waliv police in Maharashtra is scheduled to produce TV actor Sheezan Khan, the key accused in the Tunisha Sharma death case, in a Vasai court as his police custody ends Saturday.
Sheezan Khan is a costar and reported former boyfriend of Tunisha, who was allegedly found hanging at a TV serial set on December 24, barely 15 days after they called it quits.
The 28-year-old Khan was arrested on charges of abetment to suicide on December 25.
The Vasai Court on Friday sent accused Sheezan to police custody till today.
So far, the police have recorded the statements of 27 people in the matter.
According to the police, Sheezan has not been cooperating with the investigation and has repeatedly changed his statements when asked about the chats with his “secret girlfriend”.
In the application submitted by the Waliv police on Friday seeking Sheezan’s five-day remand from the court, the officials had alleged that Sheezan Khan was having an affair with another girl apart from Tunisha Sharma and had also deleted many chats from his mobile after being detained in Tunisha Sharma’s death case.
According to some chats which have been recovered, the accused used to talk to many other girls also, the police said.
“Many important chats have been found on the mobile of the accused, during the investigation which has revealed that the accused started avoiding Tunisha after the breakup. Tunisha used to message him repeatedly, but the accused avoided her by not replying to her,” the police said.
