Shawan Sen CNN-IBN | 10 Jun 2013 02:52 pmMumbai: The police are questioning the son of an actor and other people in the Jiah Khan death case, according to sources. The 25-year-old Bollywoood actress was found dead in her Juhu flat in Mumbai late on Monday night. Her post-mortem is being conducted at the JJ Hospital. "Prima facie, last call was of an actor's son. So, definitely we will question him," ACP Vishwas Nagre Patil said.
The police suspect it's a case of suicide and claim there are some marks on her neck. However, no suicide note has been found so far. Jiah was found dead around 10.45 pm by her mother.
"I don't know what happened, but when the ambulance and the police came here, that's when we found out," the security guard of Jiah Khan's house said.
"We will go to the root of this. Those who have had conversations with her have been called to the police station. We will tell you the details once we complete the investigation," the ACP said.
Jiah's mother and sister had gone out and she was alone at the house when the incident happened, the police said. "Jiah's mother and sister found her hanging when they returned at around 11 PM," police said, adding that Jiah used her own dupatta to hang herself.
Twenty five-year-old Jiah shot to fame after her debut opposite Amitabh Bachchan in Ram Gopal Verma's 'Nishabd' in 2007. Jiah appeared in two more Bollywood movies including 'Ghajini' and 'Housefull 2'.
A shocked Bollywood film fraternity expressed their grief on the death of the young actress on Twitter. Amitabh Bachchan tweeted, "WHAT ...!!! Jiah Khan ??? What has happened ? Is this correct? unbelievable !!!" (sic)
