Jiah Khan’s mother reacts to court order, talks about CBI’s ‘lack of findings’ – Eagles Vine

On Thursday, the special CBI court dismissed petitions seeking permission for further probe in Bollywood actor Jiah Khan’s alleged suicide.

While the trial in the case is already underway, now the actress’ mother Rabia Khan shared her reaction to the court order. She said in a statement, “After reading the order issued today by CBI court Mumbai what I find interesting is that the honourable judge had heard all the parties submission and he must have recognised the importance of CBI’s lack of findings, their analysis and contradictory answers that is creating severe doubt how the case has been handled, and how prematurely CBI has even produced a charge sheet without having taken the evidence on the Dupatta found on Jiah and BBM phone messages into consideration.”

Meanwhile, the petitions had been filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation and Jiah’s mother Rabia Khan. Previously, actor Sooraj Pancholi who was allegedly in a relationship with the late actress, was booked for alleged abetment to suicide in the case and is now out on bail.

The CBI had sought permission from the court to send a ‘dupatta’, purportedly used by Jiah to hang herself, to the Central Forensic Laboratory at Chandigarh for further analysis. It also wanted to send seized cellphones to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the US to retrieve ‘deleted’ chats between Jiah and Pancholi. Pancholi’s lawyer Prashant Patil objected to the petitions, saying the matter has already been decided by the High Court and Supreme court.

Special judge A S Sayyad dismissed the pleas after hearing the arguments.

On June 3, 2013, Jiah Khan was found hanging at her residence. Later, the CBI alleged that a three-page note written by Jiah was seized by the Mumbai Police during their initial investigation.

Reportedly, the alleged note mentioned her and Sooraj’s “intimate relationship” and “her physical abuse and mental and physical torture” by Sooraj which led to the suicide.
