Sooraj Pancholi

A Mumbai court Friday deferred the hearing of Sooraj Pancholi's bail plea till June 21.

Sooraj, who is in judicial custody till June 27, has been charged with abetting the suicide of Bollywood actress Nafisa alias Jiah Khan.

When the bail plea came up for hearing Friday, the court asked police to file its reply and posted the matter for further hearing June 21.

Accordingly, Sooraj will remain in the Arthur Road Central Jail till the bail plea comes up for hearing.

A former boyfriend of Jiah, Sooraj, 22, was arrested June 10 after her family handed over a letter which was found three days after the actress' suicide June 3.

The letter spoke of her strained relationship with Sooraj and how she was deeply hurt as she had to abort their baby.

Sooraj is the son of Bollywood actors Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab and was involved romantically with Jiah for over a year.

On Tuesday, a day after his arrest, Sooraj was sent to police custody till Thursday and then remanded to judicial custody till June 27.

TOI has posted a new letter which was written by Jiah Khan at Suraj's residence, which shows she was so grateful to him, and was happy that he was part of her life. She also apologizes for her behaviour, and says that she has changed alot which is specifically dated to suraj. My doubts are getting stronger now, that the letter that Jia's mother is referring to is not written by her but, someone else...Also, the fact that Zarina (Suraj' s mom) stated that, on the night of Jiah's suicide, her mother was with Aditya Pancholi, and couple of other people in a get together, at Manju Mehndru's house...She also mentioned that month before her suicide, not only did Suraj notified Jiah's mother of her weird behaviour but, also, told her that she wanted to tell her that he cannot continue this relationship. But, Jiah's mother said to keep quite and to tell her slowly...Suraj had informed Jiah's mother in front of her mother's boyfriend, that Jiah was suicidal...Jiah few days before her death, was so upset and was crying, and had gone to suraj's house saying she didn't want to go to her house, as she had quarrel with her mother...And Jiah spend the whole day at Suraj's house...So, all these things are leading me to believe now, that Suraj is being framed by Jiah's family, and that Jiah's reason for suicide was not just the abortion but, also other things which were happening in her family...I understand that he abused her, and told her to abort probably because he was also scared and not ready for the child...
But, if he was so abusive, her mother should have let Suraj tell Jiah a month ago that he wanted out of this relationship. she should have taken her daughter to the psychiatrist for depression treatment...who would tell their daughter's boyfriend to breakup with her later if he was abusive...I think Jiah was really not cared for by anyone at home either...people don't commit suicide just because of a breakup...
they should get expert opinion on those let...

What a bullsh** judicial system. They can't convict rapists and murderers with a hundred witnesses but they can put a guy behind bars for not treating his girlfriend! If all judicial systems worked this way, every boyfriend who cheats on his girlfriend would be in jail lol! I wouldn't mind it I would just threaten my boyfriend with the jail card each time he ignored me or talked to another woman lol. What a joke.

Thank god I don't live in India.

Depression is an illness just like cancer or diabetes, so those saying they have no sympathy or understanding of someone going through that, all I can say is: get of your high horse and look around.

Just as physical illness exist so does mental illness, and it has nothing to do with being weak. Depression is the body and mind's way of coping with extreme stress - chemicals being constantly released in the body till your own immune system sometimes think it is under attack.

Please have more sympathy and many more tragedies like this can be averted. Often all that person wants is someone to be there, listen or just offer comfort like a hug. I have worked with abused women, and many could not cope, simply just shut down and others struggled for years. I still see people, mainly women, suffering alone and many even refuse to accept help because they think they will get over it. As a society, where ever you are in the world, we need to be more compassionate and less judgemental. Rightly so, depression is often called the silent killer, because no one see's it and sadly it's even less understood as many would just say 'get over it' or 'don't be weak'. When that person is then bullied or made to hide it away, it gets even worse.

Just once, put yourself in their shoes, feel as if you have no hope, nothing, no one,...even if you feel the tiniest bit, you are well on the way to understanding it. Jiah's case is so sad but not surprising, isolation and being in an abusive relationship is a often recurring theme in suicides.

No matter what I will never agree to suicide or sympathize with anyone who does so. Now if a failed relationship is why she did that its a very stupid reason. And if its something else then also there are people who go through so much pain so much more than what any of us can imagine and still live so why would you want to end such a precious thing as your own life for something so petty. It may hurt but life is always better than death is what I believe.
