Jiah Khan death case: The final decision will come today in the case
On Friday, a Special CBI Court will deliver its verdict in the much-talked-about sensational case — almost 10 years after actress-model Jiah Khan was found hanging in a Mumbai flat.
Bollywood actor Sooraj Pancholi is an accused in the case. Jiah was stated to be in a relationship with Sooraj — the son of actor-couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab.
Jiah, 25, was found hanging around midnight of June 3, 2013, at her flat in Sagar Sangeet Building in the posh Juhu area. She apparently left a note, which pointed the needle of suspicion towards Sooraj, who was trying to grab a foothold in Bollywood at that time.
In a major shocker for Bollywood, Sooraj was booked under IPC Section 306 for allegedly abetting Jiah’s suicide, a week after she ended her life.
Subsequently, the case was handed over to the CBI after repeated pleas by Jiah’s mother Rabia Khan, and directives of the Bombay High Court on 3 July 2014.
In her note, Jiah narrated her ordeal, intimate relationship, physical abuse, and mental and physical torture she allegedly suffered at the hands of Sooraj.
The prosecution in the case had examined 22 witnesses, including Jiah’s mother Rabia, while Advocate Prashant Patil appeared for Sooraj.
