Aditya Panscholi has not slept or eaten properly for the last three days. How could he, when his son Sooraj is in police custody awaiting judicial custody which is expected to happen any time now.
The last three days have been spent with the Panscholi' best friends, namely a battery of the best legal brains in the business. And from what one hears, Jiah Khan's mother should brace herself for a long hard battle with the Panscholis.
According to this source, a fool-proof case has been drawn to counter Jiah's mother charges. Aditya, when contacted, seemed uncharacteristically and scarily subdued. He admitted he had been locked up with lawyers.
Says Aditya, "My son has been called many names, accused of many horrible crimes. As a father, I've borne with all the humiliation that my son has undergone. My son has gone into jail as a boy. He will come out as a man. Ek aulaad andar gaya, ek faulad baahar ayega. He will only gain through the pain of this experience. It's that poor girl for whom my heart reaches out. She didn't deserve this kind of a public humiliation after her death."
Breaking down Aditya says, "Yes, my wife and I are getting ready for a long battle ahead. We will be fighting not just for our son but for Jiah also. I've about two weeks' work in Salman's film Mental. But no more work for me. My entire focus will be on getting justice for those two kids. I won't rest until I succeed. That's the only aim in life I will live for."
