The boyfriend of Bollywood star Jiah Khan has been arrested in the aftermath of the actress' death last week (03Jun13).

The 25 year old was found dead at her property in the city after reportedly hanging herself, and police have been investigating the tragedy as a suspected suicide.

Cops have now arrested her 21-year-old boyfriend, Sooraj Pancholi, son of actor Aditya Pancholi, after Khan's mother reportedly found a six-page letter containing allegations he abused the star and cheated on her.

The letter, which cops ruled was written by the late actress, has since been published in several Indian publications.

Under The Indian Penal Code, suspects face up to 10 years in prison if convicted of abetting a person's suicide.
