A special court has ordered the CBI to speed up the trial into Jiah Khan's death by summoning the remaining witnesses against Sooraj Pancholi.

Jiah Khan, a Bollywood actress, was one of India’s popular stars. However, In 2013 at the age of 25, she committed suicide and was found dead in her apartment. Mother Rabia Khan, accused actor Sooraj Pancholi of abetting the suicide of his then-girlfriend, Jiah, after her death. A special court has ordered the CBI to speed up the trial into actor Jiah Khan’s death by summoning the remaining witnesses against Sooraj Pancholi.

Pancholi argued on Friday that the prosecution was purposefully prolonging the case and rejected the CBI’s request for an adjournment. “The prosecution is hereby directed to expedite the trial by calling the rest of the witnesses without fail,” the court responded. According to reports, Pancholi stated in an application filed through his attorney Prashant Patil that 19 witnesses have already been questioned in the ongoing case since 2014.

In an Interview with E Times, Sooraj Pancholi’s lawyer Prashant Patil said, “It is very unfortunate that the CBI is intentionally playing delaying tactics in the trial of Sooraj Pancholi Versus CBI. If the accused is guilty, he would be convicted of the offense, but if he is innocent then should be acquitted. However, the record of the Honourable Special CBI Court reflects that CBI has been only delaying the trial. It’s unfortunate that Sooraj Pancholi has to face a trial wherein there are intentional delaying tactics played, while the media had no patience for awaiting the final outcome of proceedings.”
