Jiah Khan's



lawyer claims that they have "recorded conversations of the witnesses" and the result indicates that it was not a case of "suicide".

Rabia moved the Bombay high court once again on Saturday alleging that


was murdered and had not committed suicide. She wanted a Special Investigating Team to probe the case. Meanwhile, the Panchoolis are furious after Rabia recently said that she had heard Sooraj Pancholi was trying to kill her.

"We have recorded conversations of the witnesses and it is different from the statement recorded by the police. For the last four months, we have been doing investigation and sting operation personally. The result in the material collected by us indicates it is not a case of suicide," Dinesh Tiwari, Rabia's lawyer, said.

"The injury marks indicate it cannot be a case of suicide and nobody has any explanation on this. Now the current status is that we have filed a petition in the high court," he added.

Jiah was found hanging in her Juhu flat late on June 3, 2013. An FIR was registered against Sooraj, son of actors Aditya Pancholi and Zareena Wahab, on charges of abetment.

The high court later granted him bail.

Meanwhile, Rabia's allegations claiming that someone has informed her that Sooraj Pancholi is trying to kill her, has Aditya Pancholi fuming in fury.

"Although she is trying really hard to damage my family, I feel sorry for her. I think she needs psychiatric help urgently," said Aditya.

"Everyone realises she is raving and ranting against my son for no fault of his. I can empathise with her grief as a parent. But I can't understand how any sane person can go to such ridiculous lengths just to get even with me and my family."

Aditya feels Rabia has someone's support in carrying on this campaign against Sooraj.

"She can't be carrying on this nonsense on her own. There are elements supporting her ugly smearing campaign against my son. But I cannot expose them until I have evidence. At the same time I am not going to allow Rabia to carry on this relentless hate campaign against my son. His only crime is that he fell in love with a girl from an unstable background...."
