Aditya Pancholi files ‘contempt of court’ petition against Rabia Khan

Some controversies and legal battles refuse to end and Jiah Khan’s suicide is one such case. It’s been more than three years that Jiah committed suicide which later turned to be a case of murder after Jiah’s motherRabia Khan accused her boyfriend Sooraj Pancholi of murdering her. Although there have been umpteen twists and turns in this legal war between the Pancholis and Rabia Khan, the latest development is that Aditya Pancholi and wife Zarina Wahab have filed a ‘contempt of court’ petition against Rabia in the High Court. Recently, Sooraj Pancholi’s lawyer Prashant Patil wrote a letter to the Central Bureau of Investigation, Mumbai Police Commissioner and the Juhu police station regarding additional evidences in the case. In 2014, the Bombay High court had passed an order saying that no defamatory statements will be made against the Pancholi family in print, social or electronic media. Rabia, through her counsel, had agreed to abide by it. However she recently gave an interview to a website which was very defamatory. Therefore, Sooraj’s family moved a contempt of court petition against her on Monday. Sooraj Pancholi’s lawyer Prashant Patil says, “My clients Zarina Wahab, Aditya Pancholi and Sana Pancholi had moved a defamation suit for Rs 100 crore against Rabia Khan in June 2014. On July 16, 2014 the High Court granted a favourable order wherein, Rabia Khan made a statement that she shall not use defamatory language against my clients on any social, print or electronic media. This statement was confirmed on June 10, 2015 and the notice of motion was disposed off. However, even after making such statements before the Bombay High Court and a specific order by the High Court, it is unfortunate that Rabia Khan has indulged in passing defamatory and lewd remarks against my clients through her Twitter account and interviews, thus compelling my clients to move the High Court for judicial intervention and contempt proceedings.
