Sooraj Pancholi’s mother Zarina Wahab is angry and feels that her son is being targeted. Sooraj has been charge sheeted by the Central Bureau of Investigation in the Jiah Khan murder case under the Indian Penal Code, Section 306, which deals with abetment of suicide.

“The entire charge sheet is not out yet. How dare anyone write anything about Sooraj without knowing the contents! We will take action against people giving incorrect information,” says Wahab.

In June 2013, Jiah was found hanging in the bedroom of her apartment by her mother Rabiya Khan. Rabiya later filed an FIR against Sooraj, who was then in a relationship with her, accusing him of murder and handed over a letter written by Jiah.

Talking about their future course of action, Wahab says, “We will only be able to talk about our plan of action once the complete charge sheet is out. I know who is trying to spread false rumours. The CBI has ruled out the possibility of murder...”

According to reports, the CBI charge sheet, submitted at the sessions court in Mumbai on Wednesday, mentions in graphic detail how Sooraj extricated Jiah’s foetus as she bled.

Reacting to this, Wahab says, “Who is giving all these details? Has the CBI or the court said this? Once ‘she’ got to know that Sooraj is free from getting charged with murder, she started telling stories.”

Asked, if she was referring to Rabiya Khan, “I cannot take any names, but I know she is doing this. How much can she try to defame my son?”

Rabiya remained unavailable for comment.
