Tunisha Sharma's co-star and rumoured boyfriend Sheezan Khan has been arrested in abetment to suicide under the IPC Section 306 after the Telly queen was found dead on the sets of 'Ali Baba: Dastaan-E-Kabul'.

Based on a complaint by Tunisha's mother, police registered a case and made the arrest. The two were co-stars and reportedly in a relationship.

She then went to the bathroom and did not return. Crew members later found her dead in the bathroom. Initial media reports state that she killed herself.

The 20-year-old actress was active on social media hours before her death. She posted a picture of her with the caption: "Those who are driven by their Passion don't stop."

Tunisha started her career with 'Bharat Ka Veer Putra - Maharana Pratap' and later featured in shows such as 'Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat', 'Gabbar Poonchwala', 'Sher-e-Punjab: Maharaja Ranjit Singh', 'Internet Wala Love' and 'Ishq Subhan Allah'.
