Mumbai: “After all the pain, the rape, the abuse, the torture I have seen previously I didn't deserve this.”


The statement sheds light into the troubled state of a woman, who has been tortured for days. Shocking, but it’s true – the statement is part of the six-page ‘love letter’ by Jiah Khan.



Though it has not been addressed to anyone, nor it is signed, nor has she attributed the cause of her death to anyone, but it is clear that it must have been addressed to her boyfriend.



The letter goes on to reveal, the pain and suffering that Jiah was subjected too.


   “I didn't see any love or commitment from you. I just became increasingly scared that you would hurt me mentally or physically. Your life was about partying and women. Mine was you and my work. If I stay here I will crave you and miss you. So I am kissing my 10-year career and dreams goodbye.”



Clearly, 25-year-old Jiah was so troubled in love that she thought that ending her own life would rid her of all the problems.



“You never appreciated my love, Kicked me in the face. I have no confidence or self esteem left, whatever talent whatever ambition you took it all away. You destroyed my life,” adds the letter.



The letter goes on to reveal even more shocking details. It also talks about the fact that she was pregnant and had to go in for an abortion.



“I aborted our baby when it hurt me deeply. You destroyed my Christmas and my birthday dinner when I came back. When I tried my hardest to make your birthday special. You chose to be away from me on Valentines Day. You promised me once we made it to one year we would get engaged. All you want in life is partying, your women and your selfish motives.”



The letter concludes on the point that she was completely alone and vulnerable and wanted to end her life.



“All I wanted was you and my happiness you took both away from me. I spent money on you selflessly you would throw in my face. When I would cry for you. I have nothing left in this world to live for after this. I wish you had loved me like I loved you. I dreamt of our future. I dreamt of our success. I leave this place with nothing but broken dreams and empty promises. All I want now is to go to sleep and never wake up again. I am nothing. I had everything. I felt so alone even while with you. You made me feel alone and vulnerable. I am so much more than this."
