Mumbai : The Bombay High Court Monday granted bail to Sooraj Pancholi accused of abetting the suicide of Bollywood actress Nafisa alias Jiah Khan.
Sooraj, son of actor Aditya Pancholi, has been ordered to pay a surety of Rs.50,000, surrender his passport and report to police whenever required for investigations. He was arrested June 11.
He was charged with abetting Jiah’s suicide after the actress’ family recovered a letter penned by her a few days after her death last month.
A sessions court earlier rejected Sooraj’s bail plea June 21 following which he moved the high court.
The New York-born Jiah – who acted in blockbusters like “Ghajini” – was found hanging at her home here shortly before midnight of June 3.
