Actress Jiah Khan was found dead in her Juhu apartment in Mumbai on June 3rd, 2013. Three years after her controversial death, a British forensic expert now claims that Jiah’s death was not a suicide as concluded by the CBI but a case of murder. The UK expert also said that her hanging was staged and the injury marks on her body clears indicates that it was not suicide.
The state's forensic experts had said the injury marks on Jiah's lower lip were probably the result of "friction with the teeth during the commission of the act (suicide)". But Payne-James, the British expert claims that, the injuries "represent either abrasions or bruises", and are indicative of "blunt force trauma to the mouth region (for example punching or a hand placed over the mouth)".
