Jiah Khan's man arrested

Suraj Pancholi has been arrested on suspicion of abetting Jiah Khan in her suicide.

12 Jun – Following Bollywood actress' Nafisa 'Jiah' Khan's suicide, her boyfriend Suraj Pancholi has been arrested on suspicion of abetting her in the ill-fated attempt.

Mirror reported that the police have confirmed that it was Suraj Pancholi who was held late yesterday by the detectives investigating the 25-year-old actress' death and the son of actor couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab is expected in court later today.

Jiah Khan, born as Nafisa Khan, was said to have hanged herself in her apartment on 2 June 2013.

This dramatic development came after Jiah's six-page 'suicide letter' was released by her mother Rabiya that alleged that she [Jiah] was a victim of rape and abuse, and had even aborted a baby.

Jiah wrote, "I don't know how to say this to you but I might as well now as I have nothing to lose. I've already lost everything. If you're reading this I might have already left or about to leave. I am broken inside.... I leave this place with nothing but broken dreams and empty promises. All I want now is to go to sleep and never wake up again. I am nothing. I had everything."

Jiah Khan's mother, Rabiya, was devastated by her daughter's death.

Rabiya decided to release the letter to the press after it was speculated that her daughter took her life because of her uneventful career "so that everyone may know the truth behind my daughter's tragedy".

The letter was found by Jiah's younger sister in Jiah's wallet box when she was looking for some poems written by Jiah to be read out at her prayer meeting, and has been handed to police investigating Jiah's death along with handwriting samples.

Further, it was claimed that Suraj was the last person to speak to Jiah before she hanged herself in her Mumbai apartment.
