Jiah Khan’s case: Suraj Pancholi receives bail

The Bombay high court on Monday granted bail to Suraj Pancholi, son of actor Aditya Pancholi, while observing that he cannot be held solely responsible for the ‘impulsive’ act of suicide committed by actress Jiah Khan. ‘No doubt that it was an unfortunate incident that a young girl has committed suicide. She (Jiah) must have been impulsive and he (Suraj) cannot be held solely responsible for it,’ Justice Sadhna Jadhav said.

Suraj, 22, arrested on 10 June, has been granted bail on a surety of Rs 50,000. The court has directed him to surrender his passport and appear before the Juhu police every alternate day.
The court also observed that the letter, purportedly written by Jiah and recovered from her house, could not be taken as a suicide note as it is not addressed to anyone and is not dated.
‘When there is no date on it can it be linked to the day she committed suicide?’ the court queried.
