Jiah Khan and Sooraj Pancholi

Bollywood actress, Late Jiah Khan’s mother Rabiya Khan has been alleging that her daughter Jiah Khan was murdered by Aditya Pancholi’s son Sooraj Pancholi and it was not a suicide. Actress Jiah Khan was found hanging in her Juhu flat, her boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi was arrested for allegedly abetting her suicide but was later released on bail.




Rabiya even started an online petition seeking support from people to get justice for daughter Jiah. So far, the petition has been signed by 50 supporters. The petition reads thus, “My daughter was murdered on June 3, 2013, since then we have found indisputable evidence of scientific and medical reports from leading forensic doctors which points to homicidal hanging. The police are not co-operating despite an order from the high court to re-investigate the case.”

She further added, “The prime suspect in this case is Sooraj Pancholi. We have been told that the police are sabotaging the investigation for reasons best known to them. They are also refusing to release two very important evidence that will lead us to the truth. I am pleading with you for help. I know that you are the voice that shall bring the change for ‘justice4jiah’. Please give us your support.”

The petition filed by Rabiya Khan in the Bombay High Court had stated that she has strong reasons to believe that the investigation has been hushed up at the behest of the police who had pre-decided to carry out the probe in such a manner that the truth did not come out. The police have filed a charge sheet in the case under Section 306 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the case is pending for trial.
