New Delhi: Actor Sheezan Khan, who was arrested in connection with the investigation into the death of his colleague and ex-girlfriend Tunisha Sharma, will remain in police custody till Friday, a court near Mumbai said on Wednesday.
Police produced Mr. Khan in court after his remand expired.
Tunisha Sharma was found dead on the sets of her TV show Alibaba – Dastaan-e-Kabul on Saturday. A day later, Sheezan Khan was arrested on allegations that he drove her to commit suicide.
Mr. Khan and Ms. Sharma reportedly separated 15 days before she died by suicide.
He told investigators their relationship ended after three months because it wasn’t working out between them and also talked about the age difference between the two, a police officer said Monday.
The officer said there is nothing yet to indicate that the two have decided to part ways over the Shraddha Walker murder case, in which her live-in partner Aaftab Poonawala was arrested by the Delhi Police.
As the incident sparked intense debate on social media, Ms. Sharma’s mother claimed on Monday that Mr. Khan had been cheating and “using” her daughter for three to four months.
