Jiah Khan committed suicide on the fateful day of June 3, 2013 and shocked Bollywood. Well, it’s been over four years but we are still reeling from the shock of this unfortunate incident. After death of Aamir Khan’s co star, her mom Rabia Khan escalated the matter and blamed her daughter’s alleged lover Suraj Pancholi, who made his debut with Salman Khan’s Hero a couple of years ago, for emotionally torturing her to the point where she was forced to take this extreme step. Now, there has been a lot of back and forth in this case and the latest update is that actor Sooraj has requested the court to expedite the case and has blamed Jiah’s mother to have purposefully delayed the proceedings. He wants the trial at the earliest and get on with his life. Also Read - Sajid Khan #MeToo: Paula Reveals 'Filmmaker Told Jiah Khan Stood in The Same Place Where I Stand Now'
Trouble started after Jiah’s mother appealed to the Supreme Court against High Court’s decision of refusing a Special Investigation Team investigation into the matter.

According to a daily Sooraj’s lawyer Prashant Patil said “the prosecution was not interested in conducting the trial but only cause undue delay to harass Pancholi.” Also Read - Mahesh Bhatt and Jiah Khan’s Old Video Holding Hands Goes Viral - Watch
