Seeking justice for late daughter Jiah Khan, her mother Rabiya Khan in an open-letter said that all the forensic evidence from experts points towards homicide.

Rabiya Khan also recently shared her grief on Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s radio programme titled ‘Mann Ki Baat’.

Late Bollywood actress Jiah Khan’s mother in February had approached the Supreme Court and challenged Bombay High Court order declining her plea for setting up a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe her daughter’s death.

Speaking in her open letter, Rabiya Khan said, “All the forensic evidence that I have obtained from experts in India and England point towards homicide. Their analysis shows that the injuries on my daughter’s body were inconsistent with the alleged suicidal hanging and all forensic evidence strongly suggests that she was murdered and then hanged to make it look like a suicide.”
Rabiya Khan said that in July 2014, the Bombay High Court transferred the investigation to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to find out that the death was homicidal or suicidal, and if found it to be homicidal, to launch a further investigation and take appropriate action.
“The CBI was reluctant to take over the case from the beginning and after delaying their findings for fifteen months, the investigation is now compromised,” Rabiya added. 

Previously, the Mumbai Police was investigating the sensational case of the celebrity which was later transferred to the CBI.

Jiah, 25, left behind a note allegedly pointing a finger at Sooraj Pancholi, her then boyfriend and son of actor-couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab.

Later, Mumbai police had arrested Pancholi on charges of ‘abetment to (Jiah’s) suicide and he was later granted bail.

The CBI had concurred with Mumbai police that Jiah’s death was a suicide and not a murder.
