High Court asks Jiah Khans mother to list anomalies in investigation

It seems like there is no end to the Jiah Khan suicide case. After the actress was found dead at her residence in 2013, the Mumbai Police and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had ruled that it was suicide after investigations. However, the actress' mother Rabia Khan insisted that her daughter was murdered. Further Rabia Khan had demanded that Jiah's actor boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi should be tried for murder and not for abetment of suicide.

Now we hear that despite the CBI informing the Mumbai High Court that its team had ruled out murder in actor Jiah Khan Case, a division bench headed by Justice Naresh Patil asked Rabia to prepare the list of anomalies and submit it on August 23. The bench said the list should have three columns-one listing anomalies in police probe, the second enumerating anomalies in CBI investigation and the third mentioning Rabia's views on the points left out in the probe.

This ruling comes after Rabia's lawyer Dhairyasheel Patil pointed out anomalies saying the probe had not taken into account the BBM (mobile) messages exchanged between Jiah and Sooraj. He claimed Sooraj had deleted these messages but this aspect was not considered in the probe. Patil also pointed out that the post mortem report had mentioned that Jiah's neck bore an injury mark which indicated she might have been strangulated or assaulted but this too had not been considered by the investigating authorities.
