Postmortem report of Jiah Khan has concluded that the Bollywood actress died due to hanging and no external injuries were found on her body, police said today. “The postmortem report has found that the death of Jiah Khan was due to hanging and no other external wounds were found,” they said.

Jiah (25) hanged herself at her residence in western Mumbai on June 3, allegedly over broken relationship with aspiring actor Suraj Pancholi, son of actor couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab.

Police arrested Suraj (21) and booked him on the charge of abetment to suicide following the incident.

The actress’ mother blamed Suraj for driving her daughter to suicide and later handed over a six-page letter, purportedly written by Jiah, to police, throwing light on the relationship between the two. The letter did not mention the person it is addressed to and narrates emotional travails of its writer. Police are yet to verify if the letter was indeed written by Jiah and are awaiting report of handwriting experts.

  1. TO ALL “JIAH KHAN SUPPORTERS”——– Perhaps the best thing we can do as individuals and parents is tell the kids around that marriage isn’t the ultimate goal. It isn’t even an intermediate goal. Or even a tiny goal. Screw the TBZ ads and the whitening cream commercials. Ignore Chetan Bhagat and Marriage is downright unimportant in the overall course of things.

    In India, you don’t need to be married to have a child legally. Or even to inherit and pass on property. Marriage is just a social custom where a bunch of old people shower rice on your head and believe they’re giving you their permission (or direction, in some cases) to sleep with someone. As you can imagine, it has little or no legal necessity or significance.

    What is important is planning to live a full life for yourself, and working to make all your dreams come true – regardless of whether you have a partner with you for the course.

    Sure, it’s more fun when you have a lover around. But not having one around isn’t a show-stopper. Life is compulsory. Marriage is an optional extra. Let’s tell the kids that.

    Oh, and while we’re at it, can we please stop blaming that poor Pancholi kid for Jiah Khan’s suicide? Let’s stop the witch hunt. Get him out of jail.

    And let’s stop glorifying suicide in the name of unrequited love
