Jiah Khan suicide case: Suraj Pancholi's judicial custody extended till July 11

Mumbai, June 27 (ANI): The judicial custody of Sooraj Pancholi, the son of actors Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, has been extended to July 11 in connection with abetting the suicide of Bollywood actress Nafisa alias Jiah Khan.

Pancholi, 22, was produced before the Andheri magistrate after the expiry of his judicial custody this morning.

At the hearing, the police prosecutor opposed Sooraj's bail plea on grounds that the probe into Jiah's case was at a critical state and his release on bail could hamper investigations.

Sooraj had earlier moved the Bombay High Court for bail after his earlier bail pleas were rejected both by the magistrate court and the Sessions Court.

He will continue to be lodged in the Arthur Road Central Jail till his bail plea comes up.

On June 3, Jiah, 25, was found hanging in her flat in Juhu area here. Sooraj was nabbed after a note written by Jiah blamed him for the suicide. (ANI)
