The reason behind the transfer was the Forensic opinion privately obtained by Jiah’s mother which was at variance with that of the Mumbai police, suggesting that there were loopholes in the police department’s investigations of the case.
Jiah had been found hanging from the ceiling fan of her home in Juhu, Mumbai, on June 3, 2013. The 25 year old had been in an allegedly tumultous relationship with Sooraj Pancholi, son of actor Aditya Pancholi and Zareena Wahab. The strain in her relationship was allegedly the reason that drove her to take the drastic step.
