The 25-year-old actress who hanged herself last week at her residence in Juhu, apparently left a note blaming her boyfriend Suraj, who is expected to make a debut in a remake of a Hindi film “Hero”, for her drastic step.
Suraj pancholi arrested for allegedly driving his girl friend and Bollywood actress Jiah Khan to suicide, on the basis of a note left behind by her which mentioned that she was “heartbroken” in her relationship with Suraj and fed up with his “womanising”.
“Suraj was booked under IPC section 306 of Indian Penal Code and placed under arrest in connection with Jiah Khan suicide case,” Additional Police Commissioner Vishwas Nangre Patil told media persons.
Suraj (21), son of actor couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, will be produced before a court tomorrow.
On Sunday, Jiah’s mother and sister told local media that they had found a note addressed to Suraj in which the actress, apart from mentioning “mental and physical abuse at the hands of her boyfriend”, also revealed the torment she underwent after aborting her baby with Suraj.
The note has been handed over to the police, which in turn has been forwarded to hand-writing experts to ascertain the veracity and establish its identity of the writer. The five-page note plaintively states: “When I first met you (Suraj), I was driven, ambitious and disciplined. Then I fell for you, a love I thought would bring out the best in me. I don’t know why destiny brought us together. After all the pain, the rape, the abuse, the torture I have seen previously, I didn’t deserve this.”
The letter also mentions of abortion she underwent, stating: “It didn’t matter how many gifts I gave you or how beautiful I looked for you. I was scared of getting pregnant but I gave myself completely…pain you have caused me everyday has destroyed every bit of me…destroyed my soul…All you want in life is partying, your women and your selfish motives.”
Rabiya tweeted “I am convinced that either Suraj or Aditya has hit my daughter and it’s that humiliation which triggered her death.”
