Jiah Khan’s suicide case is among Bollywood’s most controversial and still unsolved cases.

Yesterday was its first hearing BUT unfortunately nothing culminated from it.

Reason- Jiah Khan’s mother and her lawyer’s absence from the court.

Although the trial began in the sessions court, where Sooraj was present, but Rabiya Khan, who had made allegations against the actor, was conspicuous by her absence at the hearing.

According to DNA, a source close to Sooraj said, “The case was getting delayed each time. It’s been almost five years and nothing was progressing. So, the actor and his lawyer Prashant Patil requested the court to frame the charges so that the hearings would begin. Time and again, Rabiya (Khan) has been delaying the whole case. On Wednesday, although Sooraj and his lawyer reached the court for the hearing, neither Rabiya nor her lawyer was present.”

Rabiya’s absence from the hearing has raised quite a few questions. According to the report, in accordance with the law, if Rabiya isn’t present for the second hearing next Wednesday, a bailable warrant will be issued against her. If she doesn’t turn up even after that, a non-bailable warrant will be issued to produce Rabiya in court.

Jiah Khan’s suicide in June 2013 left the nation and the industry in shock. The late actress’ then-boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi has been charged under section 306 (abetment of suicide) of the Indian Penal Code. Sooraj has pleaded not guilty.

The next hearing is now on February 21.
