After over a decade of waiting, the Jiah Khan suicide case has finally reached a verdict. The accused, Sooraj Pancholi, who was accused of abetting Jiah’s suicide, has been found not guilty due to a lack of evidence in the case. Sooraj and his mother were present in court when the final decision was announced by special judge AS Sayyed.
The verdict was supposed to be announced earlier in the day, but it got delayed due to some last-minute submission of documents by Rabia Khan, Jiah’s mother. The judge informed both sides that they have the right to appeal against the order if they want.
Many people were hoping for a quick resolution to this case, which has been pending for so long. Sooraj’s exoneration may bring some relief to his family and friends, but it may also be a source of disappointment for those who believed in Jiah’s mother’s accusations.
In any case, the verdict is final, and both sides have been given the opportunity to seek justice through an appeal if they choose to do so. It is now up to them to decide whether to accept the decision or pursue the matter further in court.
