According to the post-mortem report, Tunisha died because of suffocation after hanging.
Sheezan Khan, her co-star from the show Ali Baba: Dastaan-E-Kabul has been arrested by the police after the late actress’s mother filed a complaint alleging abetment of suicide against him.

“For two consecutive days, he kept on narrating different theories for breaking up with Tunisha but when a woman officer questioned him, he started crying.”
According to the officer, it was difficult to guess his emotions by looking at his body language, but he then started crying during an interrogation.
