Mumbai police are awaiting medical reports of actress Jiah Khan to ascertain if she had undergone an abortion or been assaulted by her boyfriend, actor Aditya Pancholi's son Sooraj, as alleged in her letter - found three days after her suicide.

"It is there in the suicide note, but then till the time it is not corroborated, we can't do anything. We are waiting for the hospital report where she was treated. Till the time we don't get this, we can't say anything. We have got to know where she was treated, so the report will also come," the officer, who did not want to be identified, told reporters. The medial reports will prove whether she had been hit or not, he said. The mother also has written in her statement to police that Jiah and Sooraj were in a live-in relationship since a year, the officer said.

In the light of the abortion which Jiah has mentioned in her six-page letter, which was handed to police by her mother, a Mumbai police officer said they have identified the hospital where the actress was treated and are awaiting the medical reports to take the case further.

He also added that the case is at its preliminary stage at the moment and police are investigating further. Talking about the letter, he added that it has to be considered as an evidence as Jiah's mother has been seeing her daughter's handwriting since childhood.

"If the mother said that it is hers (Jiah's), then we must believe in that... she has seen from childhood how her handwriting is. Of course, we are sending it to handwriting experts too," he said.

Police are also trying to crack the actress' mobile phone to check her messages. They tried many passwords provided by Jiah's mother and sisters, but nothing has worked so far and they will be sending it to the experts.

Sooraj, who was arrested late on Monday night, will be in police custody till June 13. The arrest came barely two days after Jiah's family handed over her etter to police. It was found three days after her suicide June 3.
