The actor Suraj was arrested on June 11 after Jiah’s family handed over a letter it had found her five days after she hung herself in her Mumbai home.
Now, Suraj’s bail application will be heard in Mumbai High Court today. The actor was charged with abetting the suicide of Jiah Khan on 21st of June. His bail was denied by a lower court. The court had sent Mr pancholi to jail till June 27 last week.
The six-page letter that found in her bag, does not name anyone, but appears to refer to a romantic relationship. It was written on the letter, “If I stay here, I will crave you and miss you,”
Mr Pancholi’s lawyer has argued that the letter does not name his client and therefore there is no evidence that he abetted her suicide.
The police said that post-mortem report has revealed that no marks, apart from those on her neck and throat, were found on her body. A doctor has testified in court that Jiah Khan had been depressed.
However the police certified that no traces of alcohol or drugs were found either.
Suraj Pancholi reportedly dated Jiah for a year before the relationship ended. An additional Police Commissioner Vishwas Nangre-Patil justified to news agency AFP. He said,” There is a suicide note, there is a statement of (Khan’s) mother and some circumstantial evidence of triggering,”
Suraj Pancholi is the son of Bollywood stars Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, Where the actress Jiah Khan is the daughter of Rabia Amin. Jiah Khan made her Bollywood debut in 2007 with the controversial film Nishabd with Amitabh Bachchan.
