Jiah Khan suicide case: Hearing adjourned till Thursday

Five months after Jiah Khan’s death, her mother filed a petition at the Bombay HC and demanded CBI probe

A Mumbai court will hear the Jiah Khan suicide case on Thursday on the petition filed by Jiah’s mother Rabia Khan. The actor’s mother filed a petition at the Bombay High Court saying that Jiah had not committed suicide butwas murdered. Rabia demanded a CBI probe for the same. According to Dinesh Tiwari, Rabia Khan’s lawyer, “The petition, filed on October 1, is expected to come up for hearing before a single-judge Bench next week.”

Jiah’s mother has alleged that her daughter may have been killed and made to look as if she committed suicide. To support her statement, Rabia has annexed an independent forensic expert’s report which indicates that Jiah’s death was homicidal and not a suicide. As per the petition, Jiah may have been hanged after she was killed. Alleging shoddy investigations by police to help Jiah’s boyfriend Suraj Pancholi, the petition demands a CBI probe into the murder.

According to the actor’s mother, Suraj Pancholi‘s (the prime accused) father Aditya Pancholi used to their connections to manage the police.
