'Nishabd' actress Jiah Khan was found dead at her Mumbai home in 2013. CBI found a three-page suicide note where she talked about suffering at the hands of actor and then-boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi, who was booked for abetment of her suicide case. Jiah’s mother Rabia Khan filed a petition in the HC seeking reinvestigation into the matter but her plea has been dismissed. The Bombay High Court on Monday dismissed the petition saying they have full faith in the agency that probed the case.
According to media reports, Rabia Khan, in her petition, asked for a fresh probe by an independent and special agency with assistance from the United States's Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) into the nine-year-old case of her daughter’s suicide. However, the HC court consisting of a bench of Justices A S Gadkari and M N Jadhav dismissed the plea. ALSO READ: Jiah Khan SUICIDE Case: OMG!
