After a chargesheet filed by the CBI in the Jiah Khan case shocked everyone, the late actor's mother, Rabiya Khan, had a lot to say. As she spoke to Mid-Day after her arrival in Mumbai for the hearing of the case today, here are the 5 statements she made:
The Mumbai Police botched up the entire case. My daughter was subjected to cruelty and this has now come up in the CBI's findings.

How cruel can one be? If he can do this, he can even kill my daughter.
She sent a text to my sister Kavita saying 'I am excited that you are coming, we will have fun together'.
If Jiah had planned to kill herself, why would she chalk down all her meetings and shooting plans well in advance?
I will stand by what I have said. I knew my daughter very well. She had had affairs before. She had boyfriends staying with her, and, as an adult, she could make decisions for herself.
But ever since she got into a relationship with Sooraj, she always seemed terrified and under pressure.

I will go through the papers that the CBI has submitted in court and discuss the matter with my lawyers before I decide my future plans. I have to trust some agency (CBI) that can provide Jiah and me with justice as the Mumbai police did nothing other than hushing up crucial evidence.
It is learnt through the CBI, that the investigating officer in the case was a junior officer who was taking instructions from his superior.
