A note has been recovered from the set of a TV show in Maharashtra where actor Tunisha Sharma was found hanging on Saturday, the police said.
The note that says "he Is blessed to have me as a co-actor Woohooo" was recovered from a makeup room on the set of TV show 'Ali Baba: Dastaan-E-Kabul' in Maharashtra's Palghar district, police told a Vasai court.
Tunisha and her ex-boyfriend Sheezan Mohammed Khan's names were also scribbled on that piece of paper. Both Tunisha and Sheezan played the main roles in the TV show.
The day Tunisha died, the duo had a 15-minute conversation in the makeup room, after which both seemed agitated, police told the court.
Police have also recovered nearly 250 pages of WhatsApp chats between Sheezan and Tunisha from his phone that will be further analyzed.
The couple had broken up 15 days before Tunisha's death.
Police also told the court that they are trying to retrieve the deleted WhatsApp conversation from Sheezan's phone that he had with a "secret girlfriend", officials said.
The police said it was a serious case which requires a thorough investigation. But, Sheezan is not cooperating with the investigators, they told the court.
The 20-year-old actor was found hanging in the toilet on the set after a tea break while shooting. The shooting crew took her to a hospital, where she was declared dead on arrival.
Sheezan was arrested after a case of abetment of suicide was registered against him based on a complaint filed by Tunisha's mother Vanita Sharma.
Vanita Sharma has claimed that Sheezan used to take drugs and that he had relationships with several girls.
Sheezan's police custody ends tomorrow. Sources say police will present him before the Vasai court seeking extension of his custody.
