Actor Aditya Pancholi, harried by the sudden allegations against his son in the Jiah Khan case, says Sooraj was at a five star hotel when the actress died.

"We've footage of Sooraj entering the hotel, spending time in there with his friend and leaving the hotel. Therefore the question of Sooraj's guilt just doesn't arise," said Aditya reacting to Jiah's mother Rabiya Khan's allegation that her daughter was murdered by someone very "close" to her.

Jiah, known for her role in "Nishabd", was June 3 found hanging from the ceiling at her Juhu residence. She was 25. At that time the police had reportedly termed it suicide.

According to new reports, Kalina Forensic Laboratory's latest report revealed that there was human flesh and blood lodged underneath the late actress' fingernails.

Aditya, seen in films like "Yes Boss", now intends to get a restraining order against reports naming his son in the Jiah case.

"We know what Jiah's mother is implying and why she is doing what she is doing. Sooraj is not the scared child that he was when Jiah's suicide toppled his world over," he said.

"Today, after spending 21 days in one of the toughest jails in the country and having been put under the radar for no fault of his Sooraj has grown up. It is being implied that I have pulled strings to get my son out of jail on bail. Tell me if I was so powerful why would I have allowed my son to languish in Arthur Road jail for 21 days?"

Sooraj in the meanwhile, continues to prepare for his debut in the remake of Subhash Ghai's "Hero".

"My boy is much stronger now. I am glad he learnt the bitter lessons so early in his life. This whole experience has toughened him," said Aditya.

    If he killed her then why would he leave a suicide note with his own name? So that he goes to jail anyway?

    So silly!

    He might be innocent...

    My question is why is everyone doubting Sooraj? There could be a lot of people close to Jiah. But no, her mother targets Sooraj and his family specifically. I smell conspiracy. Why target just Sooraj? Why not target other people as well? It's almost as if her mother wants to hide something so she keeps blaming Sooraj hoping that the police won't look at what she's trying to hide. First question her carefully and then if you found blood and skin match it to Sooraj's. Saare sawal aur jawab wahani band ho jayenge.

    I didn't know that they found flesh and blood under her fingernails...if that is the case, then they should at least be able to figure out the DNA sequence, shouldn't they? And then be able to see if it matches Sooraj's DNA or not?

    Question mother, and mother's boy friend first...Considering the fact that she was raped at age 14, it was probably someone close to her who had access to her house than...and if her mom is claiming its someone close to her, than they should question her mom and mom's boy friend first if is found, that women are usually abused and killed by people they know :P
