Jiah Khan death case gets transferred to special CBI court; mother Rabia Khan lauds the decision
The Jiah Khan death case has remained a mystery for the past eight years and as per the recent developments the case has been transferred to a special CBI court. As per a report by ANI, the sessions court that was conducting a trial against Jiah’s then boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi has said that his trail should now be transferred to a special court.
A tweet by the portal read, “Actor Jiah Khan death case: CBI court will now hear the case pending for 8 yrs. The sessions court, which was conducting a trial against her boyfriend actor Suraj Pancholi on charges of alleged abetment, has said that the trial should be transferred to a spl CBI court”
In 2013, on June 3 actress Jiah Khan was found dead hanging from a ceiling fan at her Juhu Apartment in Mumbai. She was dating Sooraj Pancholi and had left a six-page long suicide note that was allegedly addressed to her boyfriend. Since the letter talked about the reason why Jiah ended her life and the some tiff with Sooraj, the Hero actor was taken into custody on June 10, 2013. But he was later granted bail on July 2, 2013. Later in October that year Jiah’s mother Rabia Khan had filed a plea in the Bombay High Court as she seeked a CBI probe into her daughter’s death. In 2014, Bombay High Court had ordered CBI to investigate the case.
Meanwhile, in a recent interview with Times Of India, Jiah Khan’s mother lauded the transfer of the death case as she feels her daughters was killed, “The innocent Jiah had no fault. A wise decision by the court now. CBI will retrieve evidence from Maharashtra police after nine years. CBI has Scarman’s report, experts forensic report, they need to send evidence to forensics to analyse whether the ligature could imprint just injuries on Jiah. We expect applaudable answers to the truth because Jiah would never take her life, and she was killed beyond a reasonable doubt.”
