New Delhi:

Rabiya Khan, mother of deceased Bollywood actress Jiah Khan, has penned down an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealing for justice. 

Rabiya has stated in her letter that most of the forensic evidence which was found in Jiah's case points towards certain homicide and not suicide.

The grieving mother turned to PM's radio programme 'Mann Ki Baat' to share her grief. She mentioned how she has been continuously fighting to get justice for her daughter.

Jiah Khan who was part of movies like Ghajini and Houseful committed suicide on June 3, 2013. She was in a relationship with Sooraj Pancholi, who is Aditya Pancholi's son. Entire Bollywood fraternity was shocked at her death. 

Rabiya had alleged that Sooraj was responsible for her daughter's death and it was not a case of suicide. 

Police arrested Sooraj for abetting her suicide but he was released after the High Court granted him bail. 

The High Court transferred the case to CBI in July 2014 after Rabia alleged that Police was not probing the case properly. 

The state government had appointed Dinesh Tiwari as the special public prosecutor for the case. CBI challenged the same in the High Court and said that it would appoint its own counsel. 

Rabiya also mentioned Kangana Ranaut in her letter and gave her props for speaking about an actor who allegedly assaulted and abused her when she was in a relationship with him.
