Special court rejects CBI's plea for further probe in Jiah Khan's suicide case

Mumbai/IBNS: A special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court rejected the plea filed by the probe agency for further investigation in actor Jiah Khan's suicide abetment case against actor Suraj Pancholi.

The trail in the case is already going on.

The CBI filed the plea seeking permission to send the dupatta purportedly used by Khan to commit suicide to the Central Forensic Laboratory at Chandigarh.

It also sought permission to retrieve deleted messages exchanged between the deceased and Pancholi through Blackberry messenger.

The plea stated that the messages exchanged between deceased and accused immediately before the time of death, along with the GPS location, are relevant in the case.

The CBI wanted to send both the cellphones to the Forensic Unit, Federal Bureau of Investigations, USA for examination and report through Letter Regratory Report (LR).

Pancholi’s lawyer Prashant Patil opposed the plea stating that the Bombay high court had earlier rejected a similar plea filed by Khan’s mother Rabia Khan in 2017.

Special CBI court judge AS Sayyad dismissed the pleas after hearing the arguments.

Jiah Khan, best known for her performance in the film 'Nishabd', was found hanging at her residence on June 3, 2013.
