Jiah Khan the British-American actress rose to instant stardom thanks to her debut film Nishabd opposite Amitabh Bachchan. Later her two consecutive hit films Ghajini opposite Aamir Khan and Sajid Khan‘s super hit comedy film Housefull made her the most sought after leading actress. She was enjoying life king-size when suddenly the news of her death took the entire nation by surprise.
Her live-in relationship with Sooraj Pancholi was not a secret but her suicide stunned Bollywood and questions of Sooraj Pancholi‘s involvement in Jiah‘s death came to surface. Being the son of popular actor Aditya Pancholi, the Mumbai police and later the CBI disposed-off Jiah‘s death as a suicide but Jiah mother Rabbiya and her family termed her death as pre-planned murder!
Disappointed by the Mumbai Police and the subsequent investigation by the CBI that too declared Jiah‘s death as suicide, Jiah‘s mother Rabbiya wrote an open letter to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and alleged that the CBI has intentionally distorted vital facts which mislead the case and defended the accused.
Frustrated with India’s investigative agencies Jiah‘s mother Rabbiya hired foreign forensic experts at her own expense and conducted an inquiry and came with stunning information’s. In her statement to the Mumbai High Court, she revealed that when the first police officer did ‘panchanama’ of her daughter, he clearly suspected the ‘suicide’ to be fabricated. There were many reasons for suspicion like – 1) There were injury marks on Jiah‘s face and arm 2) The balcony windows were unlocked 3) There seems to be a brawl in the room as a handle of a drawer was broken 4) The white dupatta used around Jiah’s neck in the hanging was mysteriously missing! Jiah‘s mother Rabbiya thus protested despite so many irregularities neither the police nor the CBI paid attention to these things.
Rabbiya thus in her letter to Narendra Modi protested that all forensic evidence strongly suggests that Jiah was murdered and then hanged to make it look like a suicide. She openly accused Sooraj Pancholi of her daughter’s death. As a piece of evidence, she showed the 6-page hand-written letter written by Jiah in which had accused Sooraj Pancholi of ruining her life. In her letter Jiah wrote – “Your life was about partying and women. I aborted my baby for your sake but you raped me, abused me and tortured me!!”
