Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab‘s son Sooraj Pancholi has been charged with ‘abetment to suicide’ in the Jiah Khan case. A sessions court in Mumbai framed the charges against Sooraj, to which he pleaded not guilty. According to a report on NDTV, the examination of witnesses will begin on February 14th.
According to the CBI, Sooraj Pancholi had “hidden facts and fabricated information” during questioning. The actor even refused to undergo polygraph or brain-mapping tests which the agency wanted to conduct to get to the bottom of his alleged role in the incident.
The CBI also said that a three-page note taken as evidence by the Mumbai Police on June 10th 2013, was written by Jiah Khan which narrated her “intimate relationship, physical abuse and mental and physical torture” allegedly at the hands of Sooraj Pancholi which led her to commit suicide.
