MUMBAI, 8 JUNE: Bollywood actress Jiah Khan’s family has found a six-page note, in which she made a mention about her troubled love-affair with the son of an actor couple before committing suicide, police said today.
Jiah’s family members, who found the note at their house, preferred to retain the original, doubting police action, but have agreed to give a notarised copy to the investigators, a police officer at Juhu police station said.
The gist of the note, which is yet to be received by police, reveals the strained relationship of the actress with Suraj Pancholi, son of actor couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, the officer added.
“We would seek legal experts’ opinion and an appropriate action would be initiated if required. As of now, we do not want to jump to any conclusion,” the officer said and refused to comment if the note named Suraj.
Police will also take the help of handwriting experts to find out whether the letter was indeed written by Jiah herself, though the family claims it was her handwriting.
According to reports, the note says, “You have cheated me. I trusted the relation. You didn’t care about the relation. By the time you will be reading this letter, probably by then I won’t be there in this world.”
The body of Jiah, 25, was found hanging at her ‘Sagar Sangeet’ residence in Juhu at around 11p.m. on Monday, where she lived with her mother and sister, who were not present when she ended her life.
