Suraj Pancholi, the boyfriend of Bollywood actress Jiah Khan, has been arrested on suspicion of abetting her suicide, according to The Times of India.

Pancholi, the son of Bollywood couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, was taken into custody by police in Mumbai, India following Khan's death.

Pancholi was not present at the time Khan hanged herself at her Mumbai home last week, officials say, however some believe he had a hand in it.

The late star's mother accused him of abusing Khan after she left a six-page suicide note accusing an unidentified individual of "ruining her life."

The note, which was found by her family in her handbag, alleged that the actress was the victim of rape and abuse and was forced to have an abortion.

Police said that before Khan killed herself, Pancholi spent two nights with her, was the last person she spoke to, and got into an argument with her.

Reason enough to believe, they say, that he should be tried for his actions.

Born in NYC and raised in London, Khan shot to fame in the 2007 Bollywood hit Nishabd and earned accolades for her role in 2008's Ghajini.

Pancholi and his family have yet to comment on the charges against him.
