Sooraj Pancholi revealed the same after Jiah Khan’s mother said her daughter’s death was a murder.
The Jiah Khan case has recently made news once more. In recent evidence to the special CBI court in Mumbai, Jiah’s mother Rabia Khan said that Sooraj Pancholi had verbally and physically tortured her late daughter. Following that, sources said that a psychologist had informed the CBI court that the information Sooraj provided during his interview, during which he was required to assess the actor’s statements, was false and inadequate since the actor reportedly refused to comply. According to recent accounts, Rabia insisted that it was a murder rather than a suicide in an effort to postpone the trial. In a recent interview, Sooraj Pancholi responded to this.
Sooraj Pancholi said in an interview with ETimes regarding the court ruling that he has been battling this lawsuit and the false claims made against him for the past ten years, and it has had a significant impact on him personally. The actor continued, “only I know what I have been going through all these years. I have immense respect and I have always maintained my dignity toward Jiah’s family. I plead that her family and I both have a fair trial and I pray that this comes to an end soon.”
The Bombay High Court reportedly rejected a plea Rabia Khan submitted asking for a new investigation in the Jiah Khan case, preferably by the FBI, the domestic intelligence and security service of the United States. This is according to sources in ETimes. The Central Bureau of Investigation is currently looking into the issue and has accused Jiah’s lover, actor Sooraj Pancholi, of encouraging her suicide on June 3, 2013. According to Rabia, her daughter was killed. According to reports, the bench of judges who conducted the CBI’s investigation from all perspectives concluded that it was a suicide case. “Repeated insistence of the petitioner to procure a finding from the Court that death of the victim, in this case, was homicidal and not suicidal is a clear indication of procrastinating the trial,” the court said.
