Sooraj, a former boyfriend of Jiah, is facing a case of abetment of her suicide.
“I have a twitter account which I have been using for many years. It has also been hacked a few times. I don’t have to do anything with a few comments in the past. But I will not tweet anything in future,” said her lawyer Subhash Jha, speaking on her behalf.
Justice Suresh Gupte made it clear that the statement would not bar her from speaking to the investigation agencies, such as police or CBI (with regard to the probe of her daughter’s suicide).
Pancholis have demanded Rs 100 crore in damages from Rabbiya for `posting slanderous, defamatory and abusive’ comments on the Twitter.
Their lawyer today told the court that even after the suit was filed, Rabbiya kept posting slanderous comments.
Rabbiya ‘s lawyer today also sought some time to file her reply to the defamation suit, as she was planning to go abroad.
The court granted her four weeks and adjourned the case till August 25.
