The highly controversial suicide case of Jiah Khan turned murkier as her mother Rabia Khan hurled several accusations at the actress’ boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi. After CBI replied to Rabia Khan’s accusations stating that the case is indeed a suicide, now Bombay High Court has asked Rabia to file rejoinder to the CBI reply within a span of next two weeks.
The next hearing is scheduled to be after two weeks. This decision was taken by a bench headed by Justice Naresh Patil whilst the court was hearing Rabia Khan’s petition about seeking the Special Investigation Team’s help on the case.
Jiah Khan committed suicide in June 2013 followed by which, her boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi was arrested on charges of abetting her suicide. Post that, Rabia Khan further went on to press charges of murder and rape against Sooraj and the case was handed over to the CBI. However, recent investigations, according to the CBI, claimed that there was no evidence to prove Jiah’s death was a homicide as they concluded it to be a suicide. But Rabia Khan’s legal team continued to express its disappointment over the investigations and filed a petition asking the Special Investigation Team to probe into the case.
On the other hand, followed by the reports submitted by CBI, Sooraj was cleared of charges of murder and as of now, he is being charged for abetting the suicide.
