Mumbai: Sooraj Pancholi, son of an actor couple, was on Monday arrested for allegedly driving his girl friend and Bollywood actress Jiah Khan to suicide, on the basis of a note left behind by her which mentioned that she was "heartbroken" in her relationship with Sooraj and fed up with his "womanizing".
    
"Sooraj was booked under IPC section 306 of Indian Penal Code and placed under arrest in connection with Jiah Khan suicide case," Additional Police Commissioner Vishwas Nangre Patil said.
    
Sooraj (21), son of actor couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, will be produced before a court on Tuesday.
    
The six-page note written by the 25-year-old actress who hanged herself at her Juhu residence last Monday, throws light on the rocky relationship between the two.
    
Jiah's mother Rabia Khan has alleged that her daughter suffered "trauma and abuse" at the hands of her lover and his father.
    
The note, meant for Sooraj and discovered three days after Jiah's death, has revealed that the actress was "deeply hurt" as she had to abort her baby with Sooraj and was "fed up" with his "womanising".
    
"When I first met you (Sooraj), I was driven, ambitious and disciplined. Then I fell for you, a love I thought would bring out the best in me. I don't know why destiny brought us together. After all the pain, the rape, the abuse, the torture
I have seen previously I didn't deserve this."
    
The letter reads "it didn't matter how many gifts I gave you or how beautiful I looked for you. I was scared of getting pregnant but I gave myself completely (the) pain you have caused me everyday has destroyed every bit of me, destroyed my soul."
    
Jiah wrote "if I stay here, I will crave for you and miss you. So, I am kissing my 10-year career and dreams goodbye. I never told you but I received a message about you. About you cheating on me. I chose to ignore it, decided to trust you. You embarrassed me."
