A sessions court in Mumbai sought to know the status of the CBI probe into Bollywood starlet Jiah Khan's suicide case on November 18. Jiah, an American citizen, was found dead at her Juhu home in Mumbai on June 3, 2013. Police arrested Sooraj Pancholi on the basis of a six-page letter, purportedly written by Jiah
When asked about the Jiah Khan episode, Sooraj said, "Time is the biggest healer." The actor was certain that he would emerge a stronger man after the entire incident. Sooraj was charged with abetting actress Jiah Khan's suicide on June 3, 2013
During a promotional event last week, Sooraj had said: "My name will always be associated with her and I have no guilt for that. I am happy that something at least stays with me. I am sad that she ended her life. But at least her name is with me and I have no problems with it"
"It's a great feeling. Of course, the credit goes to Salman. My mother would always say that whenever there is any difficulty in life, never complain to the Almighty about it. He will give you great returns in some way or the other. And similarly as returns, we have got Salman. I can say one thing that whatever Suraj is today, is because of Salman. I'm really grateful to him," said Zarina Wahab
Late actress Jiah Khan's mother Rabiya Khan has filed a fresh petition in the Bombay High Court alleging that her daughter could have been murdered. She has sought a CBI inquiry into the case.
