In a recent development in Jiah Khan suicide case Sooraj Pancholi is seen getting into trouble. As per the recent report the man was accused of abetting the suicide and now, according to a leading news agency, the special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court is now likely to frame charges against the actor in the case. This comes after the Supreme Court quashed the petition filed by Jiah’s mother Rabia Khan that sought that the matter must be probed by the Special Investigations Team. However, the court refused to intervene into the matter and upheld Bombay High Court’s order.
She had moved the Supreme Court after the Bombay High Court rejected her plea seeking a SIT probe, on February 9, 2017. The CBI took over the probe from the Maharashtra police following the Bombay High Court’s directives. Jiah’s mother had moved the High Court, alleging her daughter had been murdered and demanded the CBI probe the matter. Earlier this month, Sooraj had requested the court to expedite his trial in the case. Sooraj’s lawyer Prashant Patil had opposed to te several adjournments in the case and had stated that it’s been over a year and the matter is still pending at the stage of framing of charges with the prosecution yet to file any draft charges. Patil had even alleged that “the prosecution was not interested in conducting the trial but only cause undue delay” to harass Pancholi.” Jiah was found hanging at her Juhu residence on June 3, 2013. Her then boyfriend Pancholi was arrested by the police in a suicide abetment case filed against him by Jiah’s mother
