A three-part investigative docuseries, ‘Death In Bollywood’, on Jiah Khan’s death case has been released by BBC. The first episode of the documentary was unveiled on January 11. The next two parts of the series will be unveiled till 13 January. As for now, this docuseries is only available in the UK. Apart from Jiah’s mother Rabia Khan, the series also features Sooraj Pancholi and his father Aditya Pancholi.

The docu-series aims to probe into the controversial death of Jiah Khan. Even Sooraj is seen presenting his side of the story in the series. Jiah made her Bollywood debut with Nishabd in which she starred opposite megastar Amitabh Bachchan. The young actress then went to star in hit films like Ghajini and Housefull.

The 25-year-old actress was allegedly found hanging in her Mumbai Apartment on June 3, 2013. Reportedly in a note, Jiah had mentioned Sooraj Pancholi’s name. Sooraj was later arrested and charged with abetment to suicide. He was granted bail on July 2, 2013. He has denied any involvement in Jiah’s death.

Jiah’s mother Rabya Khan had persistently said that her daughter was murdered. In June 2014, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) took over Jiah’s death case. Both the police and CBI have concluded that Jiah had committed suicide.

However, Jiah’s family is still fighting for justice and they have alleged that the actress was murdered as there are still several loopholes in the cases and several questions left unanswered.

According to a report in Yahoo Lifestyle, the description below the episode of the docuseries reads, “The police never found the tracksuit that Jiah was seen wearing on CCTV just 15 minutes before her death. They soon concluded that Jiah had been driven to suicide by her boyfriend. In Indian law, this is a crime, abetment of suicide, which carries a jail sentence of up to ten years. He denies the charge. Jiah’s mother Rabia hires a private forensic investigator, who raises questions about the forensic evidence and suggests that the police may have been too quick to conclude this was suicide. She is determined to fight on for what she sees as justice for Jiah.”
