It was reported yesterday that the CBI has filed a chargesheet in the Jiah Khan suicide case, and now, Mumbai Mirror has obtained some rather disturbing details about it. A source informed the paper about the alleged involvement of Sooraj Pancholi in the matter, on the express condition of anonymity. Here are a few excerpts from the chargesheet –
Jiah was four weeks pregnant when she informed Pancholi about it.The couple then approached a physician who prescribed some medicines for medical termination of pregnancy (MTP) but that didn’t help. The couple then approached another doctor and finally a gynecologist who prescribed a stronger and more effective combination of drugs. After taking the medicine, Khan started hemorrhaging and called Pancholi for help. She was in pain and needed immediate medical attention but Pancholi allegedly asked her to wait and called up the gynecologist for guidance. He was asked to rush Khan to hospital as the fetus had probably aborted but had not been expelled from the body, which is probably what led to the hemorrhaging.
The chargesheet further adds that Pancholi was afraid that if Khan got hospitalized, their relationship would become public and his career would be affected. Sooraj then decided to take matters in his own hands rather than risk going to a hospital. He reportedly extricated the fetus and disposed it in the toilet. This allegedly left a deep emotional scar on Khan as she was very possessive about Pancholi and the latter started avoiding her, possibly for the sake of his acting career. This added to her depression which finally drove her to suicide.
The CBI has charged Sooraj for abatement of suicide. His mother, Zarina Wahab, told Mumbai Mirror:
“We came to know about the filing of the charge sheet via media only and we were not intimated by the investigating agency.” Wahab added that the family’s lawyer will decide the future course of action after going through the charge sheet.
