Mumbai: The controversy surrounding the death of Jiah Khan refuses to abate even after more than three years of the incident. New twists and turns have been emerging in the case ever since.
The latest development in the case has been appearance of the dupatta, which was used by Jiah to allegedly hang herself, reported mid-day.
Jiah’s mother Rabia, who has been fighting to get justice for her daughter, and her lawyers had raised the issue of the ‘missing’ dupatta several times as they felt it was an important object in determining if the death was due to suicide or homicide.
It came to light that the dupatta was with the Forensic Science Laboratory since the time of the incident when the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Juhu Police submitted it and other objects of evidence to the special women’s court on Friday.
Rabia’s lawyers claim that the CBI didn’t get possession of the dupatta and hence raises questions about the chargesheet that the agency submitted in the case.
Advocate Swapnil Ambure was quoted as saying, "The Chandigarh team could not come to a conclusion without examining the dupatta and other materials. How then could the CBI claim to have to completed its probe?"
The lawyers have decided to raise the issue at the hearing on Monday....
