Shikha Joshi

Model turned actress Shikha Joshi‘s suicide came as a shock to many. The actress committed suicide at her MHADA flat in Versova in Mumbai. But we bring to you a more disturbing news. It seems that Shikha’s landlady has shot a video of her dying moments. The heartless lady Madhu Bharti, instead of taking the dying woman to hospital took her video to protect herself. The video, however, went viral, and a copy can be seen on Facebook.

Shikha is seen lying in a pool of blood in the video, while her landlady Madhu Bharti is asking her questions as to why she did she take such a drastic step. There were other people present but they were unwilling to help the dying girl. How callous can a person be we say? The landlady Bharti said that she was trying to take Shikha’s statement on a mobile phone so that she could escape police suspicion.

It’s heard that people are heartless in Big cities, but this lady truly takes the cake. I mean how can a person be without pity for a dying person that instead of helping, you try to save your skin by taking down statements. A few seconds of sensible handling by the lady and the others present could have saved a human life. Our police should now awaken and realize that people are reluctant step forward and help a dying person only because they are afraid of being caught in legal formalities and questioning by the police.


We are unable to share the grisly video with you, but below we have the conversation between the dying Shikha and her landlady, that was recorded on Bharti’s mobile phone.

Bharti: Haan Shikha, Shikha, Shikha, Shikha, beta tell me why did you take this step?

Shikha: (feeble voice, as she tries to get up but slips on blood) I don’t know.

Bharti: Shikha, say why did you do this?

Bharti: Shikha let it stay on your neck it will stem the flow of blood. (referring to a piece of cloth). Speak up Shikha, police will ask us. Why did you do all this? Whose mistake was it?

Shikha: Everybody’s

Bharti: Everybody who?

Bharti: Whose fault is it? Say fast, we will tell their names to the cops.

Shikha: Dr Sharma.

Bharti: Dr Sharma? And?

Shikha: Married men.

Bharti: Married men? Who all?

Shikha: Many.

Bharti: Many? But who all?

Bharti: Shikha, place a handkerchief on the cut. Shikha, Shikha. (A third person, a woman’s voice is heard. Camera angle changes. Bharti asks somebody to continue recording. A man checks Shikha).

Bharti: She says Dr Sharma and many other married men, who exploited her, are responsible for this.

A male voice: Take her to a hospital.

Bharti: How will we take her to a hospital? (A voice in the background: Don’t bring the children here)

A male voice: Take her (to a hospital) in a car.

Bharti: You carry her. We are not going to do it.

A woman’s voice: How will you carry her in a car, there is so much blood?

Male voice: Lift her. Is an ambulance coming? (Shikha’s moaning can be heard over all the voices. Bharti is heard telling somebody again that Shikha has slashed herself.)

It is truly a shameful incident, have we became so callous towards humanity that we just think about saving our own skin rather than saving a life? Do you as an Indian citizen think that Mrs Madhu Bharti, did right by her friend who needed her?
