Mumbai: A Mumbai court Thursday extended the judicial custody of Sooraj Pancholi, charged with abetting the suicide of Bollywood actress Nafisa alias Jiah Khan, till July 11.

Pancholi, 22, son of actor couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, was produced before the Andheir magistrate after the expiry of his judicial custody in the morning.

At the hearing, the police prosecutor opposed Sooraj's bail plea on grounds that the probe into Jiah's case was at a critical state and his release on bail could hamper investigations.
