Sooraj Pancholi gets a clean chit from Jiah Khan suicide case-Deets inside

On Friday, on 28th April a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Mumbai has given a final verdict in connection with the death of actor Jiah Khan. Actor Sooraj Pancholi was accused for provoking Jiah Khan to attempt suicide. Sooraj was present in the court on Friday.

The judge, AS Sayyed of special CBI court in Mumbai said, “Dur to paucity of evidence, this court can’t hold you (Sooraj Pancholi) guilty, hence acquitted.”


Jiah Khan was best known for her performance in Nishabd opposite Amitabh Bachchan was found dead at her home in Mumbai on 3rd June, 2013. A week later a suicide note was discovered writted by Jiah. After seizing the letter Mumbai Police booked Sooraj Pancholi under dection 306 (abetment to suicide) and arrested him. In the suicide note Jiah mentioned about her troublesome relationship with Sooraj, how she was physically and mentally abused in the relationship.

After being behind the bars Sooraj’s bail plea was rejected by the Mumbai court. On July 1, 2013 after signing a bond of INR 50,000 the actor got bail. On 2nd July, the court declared Sooraj is not found guilty in Jiah’s suicide.

Although not happy with the court’s judgement, late actress Jiah Khan’s mother, Rabia Khan appealed for detailed inquiry. Hence, after almost a year of Jiah’s death the Bombay High Court transferred the case from Mumbai Police to the Central Bureau Of Investigation(CBI).

In the testimony given infront of CBI court Rabia Khan claimed that her daughter was murdered by her boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi. She also mention about depression dealt by her daughter dur to this relationship. Although after the claims been made, Sooraj Pancholi’s father, Aditya Pancholi filed a INR 100 crores defamation case against Rabia Khan.

Last year Rabia appealed to the Bombay High Court to re-open the case. Although her plea was rejected. In the petition Rabia claimed that her daughter was murdered and looked for a fresh probe into the case by an independent and special agency with assistance from the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
