Zarina Wahab: My son is NOT responsible for Jiah Khan's death

June 13, 2013 14:01 IST

Jiah KhanA month before Jiah Khan’s tragic death, Suraj Pancholi, who was reportedly in a relationship with her, paid a visit to Jiah’s mother.

He apparently told her that he was 'unable to cope with Jiah,' and wanted to terminate the relationship.

This disclosure has been made by a close family friend of the Pancholis.

Suraj’s mother Zarina confirms, “It’s a fact that my son’s relationship with Jiah was not working out. We don’t want to go into the reasons for this because it is unethical to speak about the private life of  someone so young, who is no more. Also because no one really knows what happened between the two. But we do know that Suraj wanted to call off the relationship because it wasn’t working out. He visited Jiah’s mother to inform her of this.”

Zarina reveals that Suraj is “completely dazed” by the turn of events.

Apparently, when he was arrested and taken to the police station all Suraj kept saying was: “Why are they trying to destroy my life?”

“Suraj speaks very softly. You have to strain yourself to hear him," Zarina says. "This was his first vocal protest on what is happening in his life. Our son is being made into a scapegoat . My husband Aditya and I are grieving for Jiah but our son was not responsible for her death. Jiah’s soul cannot rest in peace until these unsavoury controversies and lies about my son die down.”
