Jiah Khan’s death mystery: Bombay HC rejects mother’s plea for SIT probe

New Delhi [India], Feb. 9 : Bombay High Court on Thursday rejected the plea filed by late actress Jiah Khan's mother, Rabia Khan, demanding a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe the former's death case.

Rabia in February last year had filed a petition in the Bombay High Court, seeking a SIT probe in the case.

Earlier, she had filed a petition in the High Court against the Central Bureau of Investigation's (CBI) report categorising the actress's death on June 3, 2013, as suicidal and not homicidal.

Jiah's boyfriend-actor Sooraj Pancholi was arrested for abetting her suicide on June 10, 2013, but released on July 2 the same year after the High Court granted him bail.

She was found dead in her Juhu apartment in Mumbai on June 3, 2013..
