Reviewing these issues, it is seen that the film actor Salman Shah has committed suicide due to a family quarrel. No evidence of murder was found.

The PBI investigation report cites five reasons for Salman Shah's suicide.

They are: -

Salman's deep intimacy with actress Shabnur;

Marital quarrel with wife Samira;

Multiple suicidal or attempted suicide due to excessive emotional stress;

His infinite love for the mother led him to fall into the trap of complex relationship, which accumulated into anger;
