Bollywood actress Jiah Khan took her last breath on June 3, 2013. Her body was mysteriously found hanging at her Mumbai residence. Her mother Rabia has been pleading for justice saying that her daughter didn’t commit suicide, and that she was rather depressed because of her abusive relationship with Sooraj Pancholi, which led her to take this step.
Finally after years, Sooraj Pancholi has been charged with abetment to suicide in the case, and just like his father Aditya Pancholi who said in a statement that he is happy to start the legal battle, he too says that he has been longing for this day—so that he can defend himself.
“I was always supposed to get charged for something. Because if I am not charged, I cannot go to trial. That is how it was. So, I have been waiting for this day for the past five years. Finally on February 14, my trial will start and that is the only chance I have to defend myself. I have been waiting and waiting for this date,” he told Indian Express in an interview.
According to the CBI, Sooraj Pancholi had “hidden facts and fabricated information” during questioning, and hence, he has been charged now.
