Senior Police inspector Arun Bhagat of Juhu police station, where the case has been registered, told reporters: "Sooraj has been arrested under Section 306 of the IPC - abetment of suicide. He will be presented tomorrow at Andheri court."
"The IPC section pertains to abetment of suicide, and Sooraj Pancholi will be presented before a magistrate Tuesday morning," Bhagat told media.
