The Jiah Khan death case has taken a new turn now. Suraj Pancholi, who was charged with abetting the young actress’ suicide, is being tried in court.
“Suraj, son of actor couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, appeared before the court today and the court adjourned the case till next month,” said advocate Dinesh Tiwari, who is the legal counsel for Jiah Khan’s mother Rabiya Amin Khan.
