Mumbai: Suraj Pancholi, arrested on charges of abetting actress Jiah Khan's suicide will be produced before a Mumbai court as his custody ends on Thursday. The 22-year-old aspiring actor was arrested on Monday after Jiah committed suicide by hanging herself at her Juhu residence.
The arrest was based on a six-page suicide note reportedly written by the 25-year-old actress, and her mother's Rabbiya Amin-Khan's statement to the police. A note written by the actress revealed that she was abused in the relationship. Five other love letters were also found that were exchanged between Jiah and Suraj. The Mumbai Police have revealed that the hand writing on the letter have matched with Jiah's handwriting.
The police is now verifying if the letter is genuine and have also recovered five letters from Suraj's house and Jiah's abortion report. While speaking to CNN-IBN, Suraj's mother Zarina Wahab denied all charges and said her son should be punished if found guilty. She denied that her son was in a live-in relationship with the late actress.
However, Jiah's mother holds Suraj and his actor father Aditya Pancholi responsible for what happened to Jiah. "He hit my daughter. He tortured her. I saw bruises on her body. I saw the pain and humiliation she must have gone through. The evidence is with the police. She did not have any emptiness in her life. I am angry. I am in pain," said Rabbiya.
Actress Jiah Khan, who made her debut in 2007 in Ram Gopal Verma's 'Nishabd', was found hanging in her Juhu flat on June 3.
