Mumbai, July 3 (IANS) Sooraj Pancholi, who was in judicial custody for allegedly abetting actress Jiah Khan's death, has got bail and returned home. His mother Zarina Wahab is relieved and says she is also praying for the "Nishabd" actor.
Sooraj, who was arrested June 10, was granted bail by Bombay High Court Monday. He has been ordered to pay a surety of Rs.50,000, surrender his passport and report to police whenever required for investigations. He returned home Tuesday evening.
"It's a great relief for me as for the past few days we haven't slept peacefully. Today, he is back. I am very happy... I thank everyone whoever has prayed for my son. I am extremely happy that my son is back home," Zarina told reporters Tuesday at her residence.
The "Chitchor" actress wanted to cook Sooraj's favourite dish as he was coming home after 21 days.
"I asked him what to make and he said whatever you will make, I will eat. He is a very simple boy," she said.
Jiah, who also worked in "Ghajini" and "Housefull", committed suicide June 3.
Talking about the late actress, Zarina said: "Jiah should also get justice. I pray for that girl. Sooraj is innocent. Many people fight over phone... that doesn't mean you end your life. He has just come. I want him to take rest, don't want to put pressure on him. Time is the greatest healer."
