Sooraj Pancholi was cleared on Friday by a special CBI court of charges related to the Jiah Khan suicide case. In a recent formal announcement, Sooraj mentioned that he had regained his honour.
In the 2013 Jiah Khan suicide case, Sooraj Pancholi found comfort on Friday when a special CBI court in Mumbai handed down its ruling and cleared him of all allegations of aiding and abetting. The “paucity of evidence” in the case was mentioned by the special CBI Court in Mumbai. Sooraj Pancholi has already issued an official statement in response to the ruling, in which he mentions that in addition to winning the case, he has also regained his confidence and dignity.
In his statement, Sooraj Pancholi said, “The verdict has taken 10 long painful years and sleepless nights, But today I have not only won this case against me but I have also won my dignity and confidence back, it took a lot of courage to face the world with such heinous allegations, I hope and pray to God that nobody goes through what I have gone through at such a young age, I don’t know who will give me these 10 years of my life back to me, but I am glad that this has finally come to an end not only for me but especially for my family. There is nothing bigger than peace in this world.”
Immediately after the decision, Sooraj Pancholi also uploaded a photo of the sky on his Instagram stories with the caption, “Truth Always Prevails! #GodisGreat.”
Meanwhile, post the verdict, Jiah Khan’s mother Rabia Khan said that only the abetment charges have been eliminated, while the question mark about Jiah Khan’s death still remains. Rabia Khan told the media, “Main ek baat kahungi. Aaj abetment to suicide eradicate hua hai. Lekin the question mark is ‘how did my child die?’ So the cause of death is still pending.”
She said that she has insisted that it is a “murder case” and not a suicide from the start. She continued by saying she will contact the High Court.
