Late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput poses for the camera.
Rabia Khan, the mother of late Bollywood actor Jiah Khan, has said that she believes that her daughter, Sushant Singh Rajput, and his ex-manager Disha Salian fell victim to serial killing and asserted that people from Bollywood and politics were involved in the two deaths in June that she dubbed as murders.
Rabia, who herself has worked in a few Bollywood films in the 80s, said that from the similarities in all the three death cases, it could be easily made out that the same crime syndicate had given effect to these crimes.
She also drew parallels between the cases of Sushant Singh Rajput and her daughter to buttress her assertions.
Jiah Nafisa Khan had allegedly committed suicide at her Juhu flat in June 3, 2013 at the age of 25.
In an exclusive telephonic interview from London, Rabia said: "I have the feeling that whosoever killed Jiah has also used Rhea (Chakraborty) to kill Sushant."
"The person who killed Jiah has killed Sushant. My child's boyfriend used her for her money. He controlled Jiah.
Rhea was also doing the same. From where did she get this much money? If it came from Sushant, we know that (it is possible) since he was doing films, endorsements, and advertisements.
If not, from where did all the money come from? Was she into drug trafficking? Was she into narcotics? Was she friends with drug peddlers?" asked Rabia, who was married to Indian-origin US businessman Ali Rizhvi Khan.
She had worked in movies like Arrested, Karamyudh (both 1985) and Locket (1986).
Rabia added: "Rhea is not as shrewd as she is projected to be. Whoever is conducting the whole affair (from behind the scenes) is responsible for the serial murders in view of the similarities in the Jiah and Sushant cases."
"The person who killed Jiah killed Sushant too," Rabia alleged.

She asserted that her late daughter was 'brave' and that was the reason she was in Bollywood, pointing out that she had acted along with megastar Amitabh Bachchan (Nishabd) in 2007 and Aamir Khan in Gajni in 2008.
Rabia said that she had kept quiet for a long time, fighting her battle to get justice for Jiah. "But after witnessing Sushant's and Disha's cases, I had to come out - just as in case of Jiah, here too the angle of 'depression' is being touted. I am witnessing the same things which I saw in my daughter's case. That's why I had to step forward and speak on the whole issue," Jiah's mother said.
Levelling allegations against the Mumbai Police in Sushant case, she said it was bent on hiding the whole affair from the very beginning. "Had police dubbed the case as murder and done investigation on these lines, things would have been different. But police did not do so."
