Two days back, CBI told Bombay High Court that Jiah Khan’s death wasn’t a murder but case of suicide. A division bench asked Rabia Khan to make the list of irregularities in the investigation by police and CBI and submit it on August 23. Apparently, Rabia was upset with the CBI reports.
Talking to news daily Rabia Khan said,
If need be, I will go to the Supreme Court to get justice for my daughter. It is not monetarily feasible for me to make frequent trips to India. There are far too many discrepancies in CBI’s initial version and now.
Furthermore, she added,
If we go just by the charge sheet they have submitted, their version in court yesterday doesn’t match the written word. Who is the CBI trying to fool? The two prime evidences in a death case are the dead body and the victim’s cell phone. If it was a case of suicide, how can the CBI explain injury marks on her, the blood tissues found in her nails and the prominent bruise on her arm? These should be enough to raise an alarm. Coming to the phone, the BBM evidence was deleted. The FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) was ready to assist in retrieving the transcripts from the server. In the digital space, nothing can be deleted. This is why I was asking for the FBI intervention. Their involvement could prove to be essential in the case.
On the other hand, Prashant Patil, Sooraj’s lawyer, has reiterated,
We cannot take a stand on this case because it is between Rabia and CBI and does not involve us. It is sad because my client has a right to a free and fair trial. All we want is the process to be expedited.
