No suicide note was found in her room. 

Several celebrities like Aamir Khan's wife Kiran Rao, Prem Chopra, Deepak Parasher, Ranjeet, among others visited the bereaved family.

Actor Aditya Pancholi, who had accompanied his son Suraj to the police station for questioning, also paid the grieving family a visit.

Jiah was reportedly in a relationship with Suraj Pancholi and was heartbroken after a failed relationship with him which possibly drove her to commit suicide.
Suraj and Jiah spoke over telephone a number of times on Monday before she ended her life, sources had earlier said.
Jiah's mother and sister had gone out and she was alone at the house when she took the extreme step.
Both Suraj and Aditya were questioned by the police in connection with the case.
