Jiah Khan’s mother Rabia Khan to challenge the CBI court judgment that acquitted Sooraj Pancholi
On Friday, A special CBI court acquitted actor Sooraj Pancholi of all charges in the abetment of suicide case involving late actress Jiah Khan. In its final verdict, Judge AS Sayyed of the special CBI court in Mumbai said, “Due to paucity of evidence, this court can’t hold you (Sooraj Pancholi) guilty, hence acquitted.” Now, Jiah’s mother Rabia has reacted to the CBI court verdict saying she will challenge the judgment. She asked, ‘How did my child die?’ while speaking to the media after the hearing.
Rabia told the media gathered outside the court, “The charge of abetment to suicide has gone. But how did my child die? This is a case of murder...will approach the high court. I will go to the High Court or Supreme Court. They want me to work harder, I will work harder. I have fought for 10 years, I will fight more. Jiah will get justice.” Raising questions on CBI’s decision, Rabia added, “The court is saying no evidence. How can that be? I am sure CBI did not submit evidence. I told them to take it from Juhu. It is not shocking, it was not 306, it is 302, it helps me now.” ALSO READ: Jiah Khan Death Case Final Verdict: Sooraj Pancholi Spotted Leaving For CBI Court; Netizens Say ‘Dara Hua Toh Lag Ra Hai’
