The CBI also recovered many letters and text messages shared between Jiah and Sooraj during their good and bad times.

"From the psychological assessment and behavioral analysis, it may be inferred that Sooraj is hiding some information... and did not want to disclose some content of his last argument with the deceased, that may have caused her death," the charge sheet said.

The hand- written notes or letters of the deceased showed her mental status.

The agency said that Jiah and Sooraj were together September 2012 and used to stay together till her death- - for nearly 10 months. They were also very close physically.

"Investigations have revealed that the deceased used to clean the room of Sooraj, and used to iron his clothes.

Jiah had also presented several valuable gifts to Sooraj," the charge sheet said.

A note written by Jiah establishes how Sooraj had ruined her life, the note said, "You promised me one; we made it to one year. We would get engaged."
