New Delhi: In what appears to be the newest twist to the tragic Jiah Khan suicide episode, the handwriting on the six-page long suicide note that was recovered from the Bollywood actress` residence doesn’t seem to match that of the ones found at Sooraj Pancholi’s place.

According to fresh reports that have now emerged, there seems to be doubts regarding the authenticity of the six-page long farewell note, allegedly written by Jiah Khan.

The 25-year old actress, who was seen in a dream debut opposite Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Nishabd’ back in 2005, had hanged herself at her Juhu residence on the night of June 3. Ever since, her mother Rabbiya Khan and sisters have been running from pillar to post to prove that Jiah’s suicide was a result of the emotional and physical abuse meted out to her by her boyfriend, Sooraj Pancholi. Meanwhile, actress Zarina Wahab, the mother of Sooraj and wife of actor Aditya Pancholi, has been shouting it out to the media that her son is being victimised following the arrest of her son.

After Jiah’s suicide, a six-page long unaddressed farewell note had been unearthed from the actress’ residence. In addition to accusing (probably) her boyfriend of emotional and physical torture, the letter also spoke about an abortion that Jiah had undergone in the first few months of this year. Later, five love letters were found from Sooraj Pancholi’s apartment. The handwriting on these five letters, however, from what a tabloid reports, is found to be different from that on Jiah’s six-page note.

A senior police official revealed to the tabloid, “If you look at the letters which were at Jiah and Sooraj`s house, you get a feeling that something is definitely not all right. However, it will be wrong to say anything emphatically until we get a confirmation from forensic experts.”

(The first letter is the one that was found at Jiah Khan`s residence. The second is one that was written to Sooraj Pancholi and found at his place.)
