New Delhi: A Maharashtra court on Saturday (March 4) granted bail to television actor Sheezan Khan in the Tunisha Sharma suicide case. The court has granted bail to Sheezan on a bail bond of Rs 1 lakh and asked him to submit his passport. Sheezan was arrested for allegedly abetting the suicide of his 'Ali Baba: Dastaan-E-Kabul' co-star and former girlfriend Tunisha, and has been in the judicial custody ever since. Tunisha was found hanging inside the washroom area of the sets of the TV serial on December 24, 2022.
Following her death, the actress' mother registered a complaint against Sheezan and accused him of abetting her daughter's suicide. She made several allegations against him and his family members, and accused him of cheating on her daughter. Tunisha's mother Vanita Sharma also alleged that Sheezan and his family forced her to wear a hijab and made her learn Urdu.
