jiah khan died

A Mumbai court Thursday sent Sooraj Pancholi, son of actor couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, to judicial custody till June 27 on charges of abetting the June 3 suicide of actress Nafisa alias Jiah Khan.

Shortly after the court decision, Sooraj's lawyer said he would move a bail plea in a sessions court. Sooraj was arrested Monday.

Sooraj, 22, was presented in the court after the end of his three days' police custody.

The public prosecutor sought more time for questioning the accused in police custody to unravel details on Jiah's suicide, especially since he (Sooraj) had allegedly deleted all mobile records of SMSes and MMSes sent by the late actress.

Police contended that statements of as many as 27 people had been recorded.

Sending Sooraj to judicial custody, the court ruled that he would be lodged in the Arthur Road Central Jail.

Sooraj's arrest came soon after a letter penned by Jiah was recovered by her family who handed it over to police last week. In the six-page letter, Jiah also mentioned about her abortion.

Jiah ended her life by hanging herself at her Juhu home June 3.

its wrong to blame someone else for her actions. He maybe a jerk but she is dumb enough to stay with him. Cannot blame a boy for being a boy. If he draped her why didn't she complain against him she could have him arrested. Also abortion is her decision as well she killed her own child. She could have chosen to have the baby and raise by herself. Her mom is blaming him did she not teach her daughter that you don't need a man to live. She was probable depressed and not being treated for it. If this is the case then all movie stars and ppl will start getting arrested because someone is in love with them and could not marry them.. Crazy culture where it's ok for in laws to kill their dil for money but not for someone to break up with someone everyone is looking at only one side of story of what she wrote there are 2 sides to a coin she could have been obsessed with him and wanting to make him pay for not loving her back. This is not the first time this happened

Looks like he beat her down so much mentally, that she was not able to overcome her depression at the things that had happened to her, because of her relationship with this guy!!

He sounds like a piece of work. 22 year old guy probably living it up and selfish to the core! Such guys only find devotion from girls amusing! They don't value them! IF indeed he raped her and also forced her to get an abortion, he should be punished! He should be made an example of, so that other guys like him will think twice before abusing a women's love and trust!!
I hope Jiah gets some justice in death, which she did not get in life! Truly a sad state of affairs!!

"Suicide" is not called "murder" because of a reason, because it is not. He should get punishment for the other things he did, but NOT for her death, because he didn't do it.
