The aspiring actor Suraj Pancholi, who was said to be in a relationship with late actress Jiah Khan, has been charged with abetting Jiah’s suicide.
The police have filed a 500 page charge-sheet against Suraj Pancholi in an Andheri court. He was the last person Jiah spoke to before her death.
Jiah was found hanging on the ceiling fan in her Mumbai residence in June 2013. She was reportedly in a relationship with Suraj.
Previously, Suraj was arrested and jailed for some weeks after the death of Jiah. He is the son of veteran actor Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab.
In October last year, a further investigation was ordered by the Bombay High Court after Jiah’s mother Rabiya Khan filed a petition that says her daughter had been murdered. She demanded a CBI probe regarding the case.
Rabiya told reporters that she had strong reasons to suspect that the probe was carried out by police in a manner to look as if it was a suicide.
