Jiah Khan Suicide case: Sooraj Pancholi gets acquitted from abetment case
Finally, the honourable Court has given its judgement in The Jiah Khan sucide case which was running since 2013.
The Special CBI court held the final hearing today, on April 28, 2023 and at reportedly around 12:30 the final verdict was given and the Court acquitted actor Sooraj Pancholi of abetment charges related to The Jiah Khan suicide case.
It must be recalled that actor Sooraj Pancholi – son of actor Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab was in relationship with Jiah Khan at the time of her demise, and Sooraj was accused of abetting her suicide by Jiah’s mother Rabi Khan.
According to the allegation Sooraj and Jiah had a fight before the horrific incident.
Reportedly, the court arrived at the decision stating lack of evidence related to linking Pancholi to the abetment.
Sooraj Pancholi arrived to the court earlier today, accompanied by his mother and actress Zarina Wahab. Sooraj Pancholi made his Bollywood debut in 2015 with the film Hero alongside Athiya Shetty.
Sooraj Pancholi statement reads
“The Verdict has taken 10 long painful years and sleepless nights, But today I have not only won this case against me but I have also won my dignity and confidence back, it took a lot of courage to face the world with such heinous allegations, I hope and pray to God that nobody goes through what I have gone through at such a young age, I don’t know who will give me these 10 years of my life back to me, but I am glad that this has finally come to an end not only for me but specially for my family. There is nothing bigger than peace in this world.”
