Jiah Khan death

7 years ago, also in June, the whole industry was put in extreme shock by the demise of young Bollywood star Jiah Khan. Many found a lot of similarities between the deaths of Jiah and Sushant Singh Rajput who recently ended his life by committing suicide on June 13, 2020. They were found dead at their residence in Mumbai by hanging themselves.

On June 3, 2013, Jiah planned to spend her evening at home to binge-watch Game of Thrones. She wanted to stay awake to greet her little sister who arrived at 3 am from Heathrow. The sisters texted a lot before Kavita’s plane took off.

At around 9 pm on that day, her mother left the actress alone in their apartment as she had dinner with friends. However, when she returned home at 11.20 pm and found her daughter hanging from a ceiling fan. Her body was still warm, she screamed for help but the 25-year-old starlet was gone.

Initially, the police didn’t find a suicide note but one week later her sister Kavita found a six-page handwriting letter. The letter with no date noted wasn’t addressed to anyone but her boyfriend, Sooraj Pancholi, who is the son of two Bollywood big names Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab.

However, her mother didn’t believe it was a suicide as she continued to claim that her daughter had been murdered instead of what the police had affirmed. And the murderer she thought would be her boyfriend, Sooraj Pancholi. After almost five years, on January 31, 2018, the Mumbai court charged Sooraj with abetting the suicide of Jiah Khan. Of course, the case hadn’t been settled yet until now.
