The sessions court on Wednesday adjourned Jiah Khan's case to
July 21st. The proceedings against Suraj Pancholi, son of actor
Aditya Pancholi, accused of abetment to suicide of Jiah Khan was
"We want a special investigation team (SIT) to be formed as soon
as possible," said Aditya Pancholi later outside the court. Aditya
Pancholi also said, Suraj has filed for exemption and that the
court is yet to decide.
Both Suraj and his father were present in the court. The court
was to frame charges against Suraj Pancholi but his advocate
Shrikant Shivade informed the court that since Rabiya Khan made an
independent detailed investigation into the case was pending in the
Bombay High court and hence the case be deferred.
Suraj Pancholi was arrested last year on June 10 and booked him
for abetment of suicide of his then girl friend Jiah Khan. He was
arrested on the basis of six page letter allegedly written by Jiah
Khan. The Bombay High court granted him bail later on July 1.
However, Rabiya Khan later moved the High court in October that
her daughter was murdered and also asked CBI to probe.
