#JiahKhan: Mumbai High Court orders fresh investigation into starlet's death

A court in India has ordered a fresh investigation into the death of British-Indian Bollywood starlet Jiah Khan, who was found hanged inside her Mumbai apartment in June.

The Bombay High Court's decision comes after a petition was filed by the actress's mother Rabya Amin in September calling for India's Central Bureau of Investigation to look into the original police investigation into her daughter's death.

In her petition, Mrs Amin alleged that her 25-year-old daughter had been murdered and provided fresh evidence suggesting that she had been killed and her suicide staged.

Speaking to the UKAsian earlier this month, Mrs Amin rejected speculation that her daughter had taken her life as she was "depressed".  Among the new evidence presented by her lawyers were pictures of Jiah taken immediately after her body was discovered and which show a number of unexplained bruises on her upper body.

The petition also alleges that the initial police investigation was "shoddy" and was "rushed" owing to pressure from "vested interests".

Mrs Amin claims that police were "pressurized" by Bollywood veteran Aditya Pancholi whose son Sooraj had been in a relationship with Jiah.  After the actress's demise, Mrs Amin released what she described was a "suicide note" written by Jiah blaming Sooraj Pancholi for "driving her to take her own life".

In her interview with the UKAsian Mrs Amin described how the senior Pancholi had become "agitated" at hearing the news of Jiah's death and allegedly remarked: "Oh my god, how did this happen?  She was just a child.  My son has really "f****d up" his career, what did he see in your daughter?". 

Mr Pancholi has refused to comment.
