Nishabd actress Jiah Khan’s suicide case has taken another turn. On Thursday, February 9, the Bombay High Court dismissed a petition filed by the late actresses mother Rabia Khan where she challenged the Central Bureau of Investigation’s charge sheet which termed her daughter’s death as the suicide and not homicide, thus making the way for trial to commence against actor Sooraj Pancholi in the case.
On Thursday, a division bench of Justice Ranjit More and Justice Anuja Prabhudessai while dismissing Rabia Khan’s please of setting up a Special Investigative Team (SIT) to probe the case observed that the CBI had carried out fresh investigation from all aspects. Refusing to accept the new material produced by Rabia Khan claiming that her daughter’s death was in fact murder and not suicide, the bench said that that it was not as if the charge sheet filed would conclude the matter and whatever alleged discrepancies or materials, which petitioner had pointed out would be shut out of the Court. Rabia still has the authority to persuade the trial court for redressal of her grievances on the basis of the material produced on record before it.
On June 3, 2013, Jiah Khan was found hanging in her rented apartment at Juhu late night. A week later, her boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi, who was ready to make his debut in Bollywood, was arrested for abetting her suicide but later released on bail. Since October that year, her mother Rabia Khan has been contending that Jiah Khan was killed.
