Jiah Khan suicide: Suraj Pancholi confessed to beating up Jiah Khan, say cops

The junior Pancholi, who was detained by the Mumbai police on June 10 in connection with Jiah’s suicide, has finally admitted to beating up his ex-girlfriend

It’s been over a week since Jiah Khan committed suicide at her Juhu residence. What followed was a police investigation and some startling revelations. Jiah’s six-page suicide letter found at her home and her mother Rabiya Amin Khan’s statement reportedly claimed that Suraj Pancholi, who was dating Jiah, is responsible for the young actor’s suicide.

Media reports today suggest that Suraj has allegedly confessed that he had beaten up his girlfriend Jiah following a fight in Goa eight months ago, after which the Nishabd actor took the drastic step of attempting suicide by slitting her wrist. Juhu police investigating the case said, “Suraj has admitted to being in a live-in relationship with Jiah.” The police is contemplating adding an additional charge under Section 498-A (harassment of a woman by husband or in-laws) of IPC against Pancholi.

Police have also received the late 25-year-old’s medical report from a Juhu hospital where Jiah had undergone an abortion. “The doctor who conducted the abortion knew Jiah and her boyfriend Suraj. In fact, the abortion was conducted in the first two months of this year. We have recorded the doctor’s statement,” police reports say. Shedding more light on the case DCP Chhering Dorje said, “The pregnancy was not terminated through pills. We have sent summons to the doctor who performed the surgery, as well as to Jiah’s friends who knew about it.”

With each passing day and every new update in the suicide case, it looks like the legal trouble for the aspiring actor Suraj Pancholi is not going to end soon. The Mumbai court will issue its verdict on the lad today. Watch this space for more news.
