Jiah Khan's mother seeks fresh charges against Sooraj Pancholi, claims her daughter was murdered

In a major development related to the Jiah Khan suicide case, the mother of the late actor, Rabia Khan has moved to a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court on Thursday seeking fresh charges to be framed against actor Suraj Pancholi under the Indian Penal Code section 302 (Punishment for Murder). In the application, Rabia claimed that she has the evidence to prove that her daughter's suicide was a murder. Rabia had moved the Supreme Court as her plea seeking an SIT which was rejected by the Bombay High Court on February 9. Jiah was found hanging in her room on June 3, 2013. A week later, the Juhu police had arrested Sooraj Pancholi for abetment to suicide.
