Delhi's Rouse Avenue Court on Tuesday acquitted former Haryana Minister Gopal Goyal Kanda and one other in the air hostess Geetika Sharma suicide case.
A special court will pronounce its verdict on the Jiah Khan case at 10:30 am on Friday. She was an actress who allegedly committed suicide in 2013.
Jiah Khan’s death was initially ruled as a suicide, but her mother later alleged that she was murdered by her boyfriend at the time, actor Sooraj Pancholi. Pancholi was arrested and charged with abetment to suicide.
Rabia Khan, her mother, had dashed off an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in September 2017 pleading for justice. She criticised the CBI for their investigation in the letter.
Rabia wrote, “The injuries on my daughter’s body are inconsistent with the alleged suicidal hanging and all forensic evidence strongly suggests that she was murdered and then hanged to make it look like a suicide.”
She additionally began an internet petition drive to call for severe punishment for the accused. In 2021, a special CBI court began a probe into the suicide case.
Both sides have been presenting their arguments and supporting evidence in the lawsuit for a number of years. It’s vital to remember that until a decision is taken all reports on the result of the case should only be considered speculative and not verified information.
The verdict, when it is announced, will likely be a significant moment for all those involved in the case and for the wider public in India who have been following it closely. It’s important to remember that regardless of the outcome, the case highlights the importance of mental health awareness and support for individuals struggling with mental health issues.
When the judgment is made public, it will undoubtedly be a big event for everyone involved in the case as well as for the Indian people at large, who have been eagerly following it. Whatever the verdict, it’s critical to keep in mind that the case emphasises the value of raising mental health awareness and providing assistance to those who need it.
