In a shocker of a development stemming from Jiah Khan‘s recent suicide, Mumbai police arrested Suraj Pancholi after confirming that the handwriting on a suicide note found by Jiah Khan‘s sister while looking for poetry for Jiah‘s funeral was Jiahs.  The six page suicide note detailed abuse, rape, and an abortion that allegedly occurred at the hands of Jiah‘s ex-boyfriend Suraj Pancholi and his father actor Aditya Pancholi.

Jiah‘s mother has reiterated that her death was not a suicide following a faltering Bollywood career.  Jiah first shot to prominence in the 2007 Bollywood film ‘Nishabd‘ as a teenager in love with her friend’s father, played by Bollywood screen legend Amitabh Bachan.  Following that Jiah played in Aamir Khan‘s psychological thriller ‘Ghajini‘ and her most recent role was a supporting one in 2010’s comedy ‘Houseful‘.  Rumors were rampant that Jiah had taken her life over her stalled Bollywood career before the discovery of the shocking six page suicide note.

Legal experts say that a conviction for abetting suicide will be difficult to come by in this case as overwhelming evidence is usually necessary.  A 2010 Indian Supreme Court ruling stated that for an individual to be convicted of abetting suicide there must be instigation by that person to cause the suicide or “that there was a clear intention to commit the offense.”  Suraj Pancholi will be held by Mumbai police until June 13th.

Although many have speculated that this unfortunate turn of events may unwittingly lead to a film career after all for aspiring actor Suraj Pancholi, let’s hope that’s not true.  The old adage “there’s no such thing as bad publicity” should have it’s limits, especially when it comes to such a tragic case as this.

HERE IS A TIMELINE OF THE TRAGIC EVENTS AS THEY UNFOLDED:

Bollywood actress Jiah Khan was found dead at her residence last night around 11 pm.  The actress whose real name was Nafisa Khan, was reportedly depressed about her career and love life.

The body of 25-year-old Jiah Khan, was discovered on Monday evening at her home in Mumbai. She shared her house with her sister and mother, who reportedly found her body hanging.

Police are investigating and hoping to get answers after the post-mortem test reports arrive. Although an investigation is currently underway, Indian media suggests the reason Jiah took her life was due to a failed relationship with Suraj Pancholi, whom she had dated last year. The actress was supposedly heartbroken and wasn’t too happy with her career either.

Khan was the daughter of Indian-American Ali Rizvi Khan, and and Rabiya Amin a Hindi film actress from the 1980s. According to her website, Ms Khan was born in New York but the family moved to Chelsea area of London. She later returned to New York at 17 to study at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.

Khan’s Bollywood debut came in 2007  in the  controversial film Nishabd, based on the Vladimir Nabokov’s novel Lolita.

RIP Jiah.
