CBI files charge sheet in Jiah Khan’s case

The CBI on Wednesday filed its charge sheet in the young Bollywood starlet Jiah Khan’s suicide case. Suraj Pancholi, who made his Bollywood debut with Hero recently, is the main accused in the case. Couple of weeks ago, a sessions court in Mumbai asked the CBI about its probe status in the suicide case.

On June 3, 2013, Jiah was found hanging in her Juhu apartment. Police subsequently arrested Suraj after they recovered Jiah’s 6-page letter addressing Suraj and booked him under ‘abetment of suicide’ charges.

Jiah was in a strained relationship with Suraj which led to the actress ending her life, reveal preliminary investigation reports. Suraj was later granted bail by the Bombay High Court after his bail application contended that Jiah and him were in a consensual relationship and that Jiah’s mother Rabiya was misusing the letter.
