In 2013, Jiah Khan, a Bollywood actress, was found dead at her residence in Juhu, Mumbai. Following the discovery of a note left by Jiah Khan, her boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi, son of actor Aditya Pancholi, was arrested for inciting suicide weeks later. After a decade, a special CBI court in Mumbai cleared Sooraj Pancholi of all charges in the Jiah Khan suicide case due to lack of evidence.

While Jiah’s mother, Rabia Khan, stated that she would continue to fight for her daughter and not lose faith in the judiciary, Sooraj Pancholi has issued an official statement on the matter. In his statement, Pancholi says: “The verdict has taken 10 long and painful years and sleepless nights, but today I have not only won this case against myself, but also regained my dignity and confidence, it took a lot of courage to face the world with such egregious accusations, I hope and pray to God that no one goes through what I have gone through at such a young age.”
He further added: “I don’t know who will give me back these 10 years of my life, but I am glad that this has finally come to an end, not only for me but especially for my family. There is nothing greater than peace in this world.”
In addition to her official statement, hours after the verdict, Sooraj took to her Instagram account and reacted by dropping an image in the story section along with a caption that read, “The truth always wins.”
For the uninitiated, Jiah Khan’s family discovered a six-page letter written by the actress at her home after her death. The letter detailed her experiences of being cheated on, raped, and subsequently undergoing an abortion. Sooraj was facing the charge under section 306 (incitement to suicide) of the Indian Penal Code.
