The prosecution opposed his bail application on grounds that the investigations had already reached a crucial stage and his release at this stage could hamper the probe.
Suraj, son of Bollywood actor-couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, is in judicial custody till June 27 and lodged at the Arthur Road Central Jail.
In his bail application, among other things, Suraj has contended that the late Jiah's mother, Rabia Khan who is the complainant in her daughter's suicide case, was allegedly taking revenge against him for some unknown reasons.
Suraj further alleged that Rabia Khan was "misusing" a letter penned by Jiah which was found at her home four days after she ended her life, June 3.
In his bail plea filed through a lawyer, Suraj further contended that the letter - in which Jiah had described her woes with Suraj - was not addressed to him and did not carry his name.
After the five-page letter was recovered and handed over to the police, Suraj was arrested June 10 on grounds that it was "incriminating" evidence against him as she had blamed him for various problems she faced during her lifetime.
Shortly after his arrest, a magistrate in Andheri court had remanded Suraj to police custody for three days and then to judicial custody till June 27. (IANS)
