Bollywood actress Jiah Khan’s case is getting more complicated ways in its investigation. Her mother Rabia Khan has got hands on forensic report that reveals the police who has scanned the crime scene didn’t find any fingerprints on certain objects in the room where she was found dead. The objects like fan, from which she was hanging, a water bottle which she frequently used and the room’s open window despite the air-conditioner being on, are showing no fingerprints as per police’s knowledge.
The report was handed over to Rabia by the Juhu police on Monday. It was prepared by an expert who had collected fingerprints from the place of incident. The prints were gathered between 12:30pm and 1:15pm on June 4, the day after Jiah Khan found hanging with the ceiling fan.
The DNA report of the human blood and flesh found underneath Jiah’s fingernail, the blood found on the mattress in the room and blood found in an adjoining room, has also been given to mother Rabia. This report revealed that all the samples belonged to Jiah Khan, including the blood found in the adjoining room.
Rabia sent these reports to an independent forensic expert for analysis and a conclusion is expected to be out in a few days.
Rabia’s advocate Dinesh Tiwari ensured Rabia that he will bring these points to the notice of Andheri Metropolitan Court, which is hearing Rabia’s application seeking the exhumation of Jiah’s body.
Reportedly, the court is likely to hear Rabia’s application today.
Mr. Dinesh Tiwari also cited the findings to question the credibility of the investigation of police.
“How is it that the fan, water bottle and open window do not have any fingerprints at all – including Jiah’s own? This clearly shows someone has cleaned the site of offence,” he said in a statement.
According to him, someone could have entered the first floor from the entrance ledge of the building, which is apparently very close to the window.
“After having raised the issue that blood and human tissues found in Jiah’s nail clippings indicated a struggle before she died, the police now say the blood and human tissues belonged to Jiah. Where are the corresponding injury marks on Jiah’s body? The post-mortem report does not note any such injury marks,” Tiwari said on the DNA reports of Jiah.
He also questioned the finding that Jiah’s blood was found even in the adjoining room.
“How can that happen? It is no one’s case that Jiah had any cut marks on her body. Then how is it that her blood was found in the adjoining room? This clearly shows that something had happened in that particular room,” said Tiwari.
