Jiah Khan suicide case: Fresh petition filed by mother, wants FBI to probe
The CBI had filed a report in December 2015.
New Delhi: Bollywood actress Jiah Khan's suicide case seems to have taken a new turn. The departed actress' mother Rabia has reportedly filed a fresh petition in Bombay High court against the Central Bureau of Investigation's (CBI) report that states Jiah's death as a suicide and not a homicide.
According to Mumbai Mirror, the fresh petition has been sought to form a Special Investigation Team (SIT) by the high court and also provide means where in the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) would assist this SIT as Jiah was an US citizen. The CBI had filed a report in December 2015.
The report further states that petition was filed by lawyers Dinesh Tiwari and Swapnil Ambure, who said that the CBI hastily concluded that the case was that of suicide; and that neither did it bother to counter question concerned people nor bother to get important evidence on record.
Jiah, the 25-year-old actress, was found hanging from a ceiling fan at her home in Juhu on June 3, 2013.
