Sooraj Pancholi and Family Accuses Jiah Khan's Mother of Contempt of Court
The family have moved a contempt of court petition against the late actress's mother, Rabia Khan
The suicide of actress Jiah Khan and the involvement of alleged boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi has developed new twists and turns in the last three years, since the actress took her own life. The case turned into a murder trial with the actress's mother Rabia Khan accusing Sooraj of killing her daughter Jiah. Sooraj Pancholi's lawyer Prashant Patil recently wrote a letter to the Central Bureau of Investigation, Mumbai Police Commissioner and the Juhu police station regarding additional evidences in the case. Following which the Pancholi family are now making a case against Jiah Khan's mother for defaming the family.
A source revealed in the article, "In 2014, the Bombay High court had passed an order saying that no defamatory statements will be made against the Pancholi family in print, social or electronic media. Rabia, through her counsel, had agreed to abide by it. However she recently gave an interview to a website which was very defamatory. Therefore, Sooraj's family moved a contempt of court petition against her on Monday."
Upon being contacted by the publication, Prashant Patil said, "My clients Zarina Wahab, Aditya Pancholi and Sana Pancholi had moved a defamation suit for Rs 100 crore against Rabia Khan in June 2014. On July 16, 2014 the High Court granted a favourable order wherein, Rabia Khan made a statement that she shall not use defamatory language against my clients on any social, print or electronic media. This statement was confirmed on June 10, 2015 and the notice of motion was disposed off. However, even after making such statements before the Bombay High Court and a specific order by the High Court, it is unfortunate that Rabia Khan has indulged in passing defamatory and lewd remarks against my clients through her Twitter account and interviews, thus compelling my clients to move the High Court for judicial intervention and contempt proceedings."
Looks like the case is getting murkier by the day!
