 New Delhi Jan,22: Aspiring actor Suraj Pancholi has been charged with abetting Nishabd star Jiah Khan’s suicide. Mumbai Police have filed a 500 page charge-sheet in an Andheri court against Suraj, who had been in a relationship with Jiah and was the last person she spoke to before her death. The 25-year-old actress was found hanging in her Mumbai apartment in June last year.

Suraj, son of actors Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, was arrested and jailed for some weeks after Jiah’s death. In October, the Bombay High Court ordered police to further investigate Jiah’s death after her mother Rabiya Khan filed a petition alleging her daughter had been murdered and demanded a CBI probe.

Rabiya told news agency PTI at the time that “she had strong reasons to suspect that the probe was carried out by police in a manner to look as if it was a suicide.”

Suraj Pancholi, 22, will make his debut in the remake of 1983 film Hero.
