Jiah Khan was found dead at her Mumbai home on June 3, 2013. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said that the alleged suicide note mentioned “physical abuse and mental and physical torture” at the hands of Sooraj Pancholi.

Rabia Khan appeared before a special CBI court where Pancholi was facing a trial for allegedly abetting Jiah Khan’s suicide. Rabia said in court that Pancholi sent messages to her daughter on Facebook and said he wanted to meet her.

She added that Jian was initially “apprehensive and reluctant”. The duo eventually met in September 2012 as they were neighbours and later began dating. By October, the couple began living at each other’s house.

Rabia alleged that Jiah was being physically and mentally abused by Pancholi. She said that Jiah was supposed to travel to London in December 2012 but did not come. Pancholi allegedly sent Rabia a text message where he apologised for “losing out” on Jiah when he was drunk and angry.

Rabia said, “That is when I first discovered that they had a violent fight. Maybe this was their first fight.” She added that her daughter said she would leave Pancholi, but after he cried and apologised she forgave him.

In January 2013, Rabia asked her to send pictures of her trip to Goa with Pancholi. She said, “In that picture, I saw bruises on her thigh and on her elbow and she said ‘Never mind we just had a fight”. Jiah also told her mother that Pancholi would put her down in front of friends and flirted with other women in her presence.

Jiah visited her mother in London and allegedly told her mother that Pancholi physically and verbally abused her, called her “dirty names”, and once threw her out of the car. After Jiah returned to India, she and Pancholi rekindled their relationship after she nursed him back to health after he underwent surgery.

Rabia Khan’s testimony will continue on Thursday.
