Actor couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, whose son Suraj is facing charges of abetting the suicide of actress Jiah Khan, have filed a Rs 100 crore defamation suit in the Bombay High Court against Jiah’s mother Rabia Khan.

Two days ago, the High Court, hearing Rabia’s plea, had transferred the probe from Mumbai police to CBI, asking the agency to find out whether it was a case of suicide or homicide.

The suit, filed by the Pancholis, was heard by Justice S C Gupte who on Friday asked the plaintiffs to serve a notice on Rabia and posted the matter for further hearing on July 9. “So far, we have not got any notice but we know that the suit has been filed and would be heard on Wednesday (July 9),” said Rabia’s lawyer Dinesh Tiwari.

The suit, filed by Aditya, wife Zarina and daughter Sana, alleged that Rabia, a UK national, had posted slanderous, defamatory and abusive comments on Twitter which had put the Pancholi family in poor light in eyes of society.
