Officials from the Mumbai Police are investigating the mysterious death of B.A. Pass actress Shikha Joshi, who was found with her throat slit in the bathroom of her residence at Andheri west on Saturday evening.
As per police sources, Joshi, who stayed in a flat at New MHADA Colony with a room-mate, was found with a slit throat in the bathroom of the flat by her room-mate, who immediately informed the police. The roommate also rushed Joshi to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Four Bungalows, where she was declared dead. In her statement to the police, the room-mate revealed that Shikha had taken her own life because she was frustrated with the lack of acting offers.
On getting to know about Joshi's suicide, Shilpa Shukla took to Twitter to write, ''ShikhaJoshi; Remember we danced our hearts out at B.A. Pass release party. She loved us a lot. So saddened by her death . Aah! God bless her. Still can't get over with Shikha Joshi's choice to kill life. Painful.''
It seems that Joshi had raked up a controversy in 2011, when she had leveled allegations against a doctor for molesting her. Reportedly, Joshi had got a breast implant surgery done by the accused doctor in 2006 but after five years, she found a lump in her breast and visited the doctor again, which was when he allegedly molested her. Shikha's room-mate said that the actress believed this incident had sabotaged her career.
