Jiah Khan’s mother Rabia Khan is delaying the trial by calling it a murder case: Bombay HC

(Trigger Warning)

The Jiah Khan case has been back in the headlines lately. Recently, Jiah’s mother Rabia Khan gave testimony to the special CBI court in Mumbai and said that Sooraj Pancholi verbally and physically abused her late daughter. Following that, reports surfaced that a psychologist had submitted a report to the CBI court that in his interview with Sooraj, where he had to evaluate information from the actor, it was incomplete and fabricated because Sooraj allegedly didn’t cooperate. But now the latest reports suggest that Rabia was trying to procrastinate and delay the trial by insisting that it was a homicide.

According to reports in ETimes, the Bombay High Court has dismissed a petition filed by Rabia Khan seeking a fresh probe in the Jiah Khan case preferably by the FBI, the domestic intelligence and security service of the United States. The case is presently probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation which has charged actor Sooraj Pancholi, Jiah’s boyfriend, for abetting her suicide on June 3, 2013. Rabia has been claiming that her daughter was murdered. Reportedly, the bench of judges carried out by the CBI from all possible angles stated that it was a case of suicide. “Repeated insistence of the petitioner to procure a finding from the Court that death of the victim, in this case, was homicidal and not suicidal is a clear indication of procrastinating the trial,” the court said.

The entire approach of Rabia Khan appears to procure an order from this Court, without facing trial, that the death of the victim was homicidal and not suicidal. This kind of approach appears to circumvent the due process of law, the HC said.
