Actress Jiah Khan's Mom Now Says the Boyfriend Murdered Her Daughter

Heartbreaking 9

Jiah KhanOh lord, poor Jiah Khan is back in the news today. As in Jiah Khan the Bollywood starlet who dominated headlines back in June when she was found hanged in her Mumbai home, whose death sparked a seemingly endless number of tragic twists and turns as her boyfriend Suraj Pancholi was arrested, her alleged suicide letter was released to the public, Pancholi was found not responsible for abetting her suicide, and the note itself came under controversy with questions about the handwriting and the court's ruling that it couldn't be proven that it was actually intended as a suicide message.

The latest drama is related to her grieving mother Rabiya Khan, who's been clear all along that she blames Pancholi for Jiah's death. Rabiya has taken things quite a bit further in recent days, though, with a series of tweets that flat-out accuse Pancholi of murdering her daughter.

Pancholi was held by Mumbai police for several weeks while under investigation for abetting Jiah's suicide, but the court ultimately ruled that he couldn't be held responsible for her actions:

No doubt it was unfortunate that a young girl has committed suicide. She (Jiah) must have been impulsive and he (Suraj) cannot be held solely responsible for it. (...) She was in the relationship on her own volition.

In a six-page letter released to the public by Jiah Khan's mother, Jiah described an extremely troubled relationship with Pancholi. Some excerpts:

... the pain you have caused me everyday has destroyed every bit of me, destroyed my soul.

I just became increasingly scared that you would hurt me mentally or physically.

Things were looking up for me here, but is it worth it when you constantly feel the pain of heartbreak when the person you love wants to abuse you or threatens o hit you or cheats on you telling other girls they are beautiful or throws you out of their house when you have no where to go

I aborted our baby when it hurt me deeply.

All I want now is to go to sleep and never wake up again. I am nothing. I had everything.

Truly, I can't begin to imagine the pain her mother's been going through in recent days. But despite the reports that definitively state that Pancholi was not present at the time of Jiah Khan's death, Rabiya Khan has started posting a series of tweets making new claims about the case:

Rabiya has also tweeted the following:

When he did not love her then why hit her abuse her rape her and then kill her

Pls note that she never killed herself no proof is there finger print report in not complete.

They will get the evidence

The thing is, Rabiya Khan doesn't exactly sound mentally stable. It looks to me like she's come unhinged in recent weeks, because her other tweets include calling someone who disagreed with her a lesbian, and accusing another critic of being the murderer ("I suspect you now"). I don't know what all went on between Jiah Khan and her boyfriend, but I honestly doubt her death was caused by anything other than her own desperate decision to end her life.

The whole thing has been beyond sad from the very beginning, and Rabiya Khan's fixation on Suraj Pancholi is clearly preventing her from coping with her loss. I hope this poor woman is able to get help, grieve her daughter, and eventually start living her life again.

Do you think there's any chance that Suraj Pancholi actually DID kill Jiah Khan?

This mother seems to me more of a hanger on,still trying to ride the coat tails of her daughter.It's more about having sympathy for her(mom).I think she might be feeling pain to a point,but this seems more about her.Poor girl,hope there's peace for her now.

Sadly this is typical of families with suicides. To allow themselves to feel the guilt that they may have had a hand in the suicide or missed the warnings is too much to bear so they start scapegoating and coming up with conspiracies, (Marilyn Monroe anyone?)

Hopefully this woman gets into counseling and moves on with her life, otherwise she's going to get sued.

Jiah killed herself. Not her boyfriend. If she was unhappy with the relationship she should have left the Douchebag. Unfortunately Jiah Khan was mentally ill and didn't seek the help she clearly needed. R.I.P

Also may I add, JIAH KHAN WAS SUICIDAL. She attempted Suicide 8 months prior to her death. Her mother is clearly in denial...she needs to accept the situation for what it is. Her daughter was depressed about her career and had poor taste in men.

Jiah was a case of acute depression with many previous suicide attempts. Now the mother has lost it too. What you sow, so shall u reap.

If you actually know the facts; the stool on which she hung her self was never found, the place where she was found hanging was between two single beds, and the window was open when the air conditioner was on, her clothes were changed, she didn't leave the suicide note right next to her when she committed suicide( which she would have if she was actually committing suicide), Suraj pancholi was seen on her building just minutes before her death, she ha more than one injury which is unlikely if death is caused by hanging, and her eyes and tongue didn't pop ( almost a compulsory scenario when death is caused by hanging), the wound on her neck is too deep tone caused by a muslin cloth which the police describe as the cloth used by her for hanging herself. So it is actually quite likely that she was murdered. Please read the facts of the case before making your opinion public.

I agree 100% with Ila... these bollywood playboys are known for using girls and then getting rid of them.. in this case the Forensic reports confirm a belt and not a muslin cloth.. Gosh you people.. stop bashing the poor mom who is fighting for justice.. It is people like Aditya and his son that bribe and use the already corrupt system.. please know the psych of sick indian men!

SO JUST BECAUSE A MOTHER WHO LOVED HER CHILD AND HER HEART IS LEFT TO BLEED WHAT DO U CLAIM THAT IS MENTALLY UNSTABLE AND COME OFF THE HINGES. WAKE UP PEOPLE, THOSE DAYS ARE GONE WHEN U HAD SO MUCH POWER TO HIDE THE TRUTH BY ACCUSING SOME THAT OH THE LADY IS MENTAL NO THE MOTHER HAS A RIGHT TO SPEAK OUT IF SHE KNOWS THE TRUTH. I DO HOPE THIS BEAUTIFUL MOTHER OF SUCH A BEAU ANGEL GETS JUSTICE. ACCUSING SOME ONE OF THEIR MENTAL STABILITY IS VERY OLD FASHION. LIVING IN A DIGITAL TECH WORLD AND UR STILL ACCUSING THE MOTHER WHO SEEKS JUSTICE. SHAME ON U!
