Mumbai: Actor couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, whose son Suraj is facing charges of abetting the suicide of actress Jiah Khan, filed a Rs 100 crore defamation suit in the Bombay High Court against Rabia Khan, the mother of the deceased.
In a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror Aditya and his wife revealed why they filed the defamation suit against Rabia.
When asked the reason for filing the defamation suit, Aditya responded furiously saying, “We want her to stop talking s**t about our family. Since the last eight months she has been running a malicious campaign against us on Twitter. She claims I am a drug peddler, my daughter Sana is an addict, my son is a murderer and Zarina is a home-breaker.”
Aditya cailms that Rabia Khan keeps changing her statements and they want a thorough CBI probe.
“Earlier, Rabia said that (Jiah’s letter) was Jiah's suicide note. Now, she says her daughter was murdered. If she committed suicide, she couldn't have been murdered and vice versa.”
“Jiah's handwriting doesn't match with that in the letters she wrote to Sooraj. And I'm saying this on the basis of a forensic test, which we got done. Handwriting expert Nisha Menon has given me a report that will hold in any court of law,” said Aditya.
According to reports Rabia claimed that her daughter’s body was found in a gown, whereas she had entered the building wearing a track suit and also hanging herself from the fan was almost impossible as it was placed between two beds.
To which Aditya said, “Let the CBI investigate every point. We are even ready to undergo a lie-detector test. But Rabia too should undergo the same test”
The actor also said that he and his wife were aware of their Son’s relationship with Jiah and had no objections.
He finally added, “If she had apologised for the tweets, we wouldn't have filed the defamation suit. That way, I can say that since she was the first person to enter the house, maybe she killed her daughter.”
Aditya and his wife decided enough was enough and therefore took a stand for their son....
