Bollywood actress Jiah Khan who committed suicide on Monday night, previously attempted to kill herself by slitting her wrists.
DNA reports that police officers investigating the death have said that Khan tried taking her life eight months ago apparently when she was drunk. They also found a pack of Ayurvedic sleeping pills in her bedroom.
While the exact reason behind the suicide has not been revealed, reports suggest that Khan had issues with her boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi and was one of the reasons for her acute depression.
Though Khan۪s mother, Rabia, in her statement to the police, mentioned the relationship, she did not make any allegation. She said Jiah was depressed for the past few months, said a police officer.
However, Sooraj told the police that she was upset as she was not getting any film offers for the past three years. That appeared to have been the reason for her earlier attempt, he added.
Doctors, who conducted the autopsy, said that post-mortem report indicated she died of asphyxia due to hanging. There were no additional injuries or bruises on her body except for the anti-mortem ligature mark on her neck which was caused due to hanging, said Dr TP Lahane, dean at state-run JJ Hospital.
Her organs have been preserved for histopathological and chemical analysis. At the moment, we cannot say if she was under the influence of alcohol or/and drugs when she hanged herself.
