New Delhi: The hearing in the case of Bollywood actress Jiah Khan has been adjourned till January 18 and the special CBI court has also taken cognisance of the chargesheet filed by the agency.

According to reports, the chargesheet reveals the sequence of events leading to Jiah Khan's suicide.
"On the fateful day, Jiah Khan had left the residence of said private person (Sooraj) where she had stayed with him for two-three days. She had accused him of lying about his meeting with a common lady friend. Jiah Khan, who continuously messaged in this regard to him, had infuriated him, and he deleted her BBM account from his mobile. Later, he had received a call on his mobile from her at midnight which lasted for about 400 minutes. Meanwhile, he had also sent certain messages to Jiah which were abusive and accusatory," the press release from the agency alleged.
Meanwhile, Jiah's mother Rabia Khan expressed her unhappiness at the proceedings and said that the probe is hiding a bigger picture to the tragic incident.
"There is more to this and I am sure the truth will definitely come out," Rabia told on Friday.
Sooraj Pancholi has been booked under section 306 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for abetment to suicide while murder has been ruled out.
Jiah Khan was found dead in her Juhu apartment in Mumbai on June 3, 2013 and Pancholi, who was allegedly her boyfriend at the time, came under the radar in the investigation.
