In another twist to Jiah Khan’s suicide case, her mother, Rabia Amin filed a petition in Bombay High Court against CBI’s report which declared her daughter’s death as suicide and not a murder.

In her petition, Rabia sought directions to enable Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to assist Special Investigation Team (SIT) as Jiah was a US citizen. She also demanded a probe into the police officials’ alleged blunder that helped the accused by sabotaging the case.

The petition alleged that, "the CBI has not concluded the investigation in its real spirit and has closed the investigation without making any serious effort to unearth the issues involved in the death of the deceased. In fact, they have been misleading both the petitioner and the US Consulate about the direction of the investigation.”

The accused, Sooraj Pancholi, who made his debut in Hindi film industry recently, has been charged by CBI for allegedly abetting suicide of Jiah Khan with whom he had met through Facebook in September 2012 and the friendship blossomed into "intimate relationship" over a period of time.
