Tunisha's mother counters allegations by Sheezan's family: 'She wasn't short of money'
Deceased TV actor Tunisha Sharma's mother Vanita Sharma on Sunday claimed that her daughter "wasn't short of money and all her needs were met," refuting all the allegations made by Sheezan Khan's family.
On Monday, the family of TV actor Sheezan Khan, who has been in jail since December 25 in connection with Tunisha Sharma's death case, held a media conference to address all the allegations made by Tunisha's mother, Vanita Sharma.
Sheezan's family not only refuted all the allegations but also made several allegations against Tunisha's mother, Vanita Sharma and uncle Pawan Sharma. The family of Sheezan Khan, the accused in the Tunisha Sharma death case, on Monday alleged that Tunisha's depression was due to her childhood trauma and blamed the deceased's mother for it.
Addressing a press conference, Sheezan's sister and co-actor Falaq Naaz, accused Tunisha's mother of "neglecting" her and said that the deceased actor's depression was due to her childhood trauma. "Tunisha's mother accepted that she has been neglecting Tunisha and didn't take care of her. Tunisha's depression was due to her childhood trauma," said Falaq Naaz.
Sheezan's sister Falaq Naaz said that Tunisha was like her sister.
"We had also planned Tunisha's birthday and her mother also knew about it," Naaz said. She said that everything is being distorted in front of the media.
"Tunisha did not want to work, she wanted to travel. But her mother could not take care of her. They never gave her money, Tunisha had to beg her mother for even small amounts like Rs. 500," she alleged.
"Tunisha Sharma would have been alive today if her mother had taken care of her properly," Naaz alleged.
Refuting the allegations levelled by Sheezan's family, Tunisha's mother, Vanita Sharma told ANI, "I sent her Rs 3 Lakh within 3 months. She wasn't short of money & all her needs were met. She later borrowed money from friends. Maybe Sheezan took drugs & was imposing the habit on her. His car broke down & he used my car for a month."
