'I feel relieved and happy for Suraj Pancholi'
Bollywood stars welcomed the Bombay High Court's judgement of granting bail to Suraj Pancholi, who was arrested on June 10 for allegedly abetting the suicide of actress Jiah Khan. Here's what they said:
Arshad Warsi: '3 CHEERS to Justice Sadhna Jadhav for giving Suraj Pancholi bail. There is hope left in this country.'
Mini Mathur: 'Isnt it unfair that Suraj Pancholi spent 20 days in jail because the police played judge & jury on his case without any conclusive evidence? There were others who contributed to poor Jiah Khans depression too. Why weren't they also put behind bars till they were proven innocent?'
Sanjay Gupta: 'What I have said from the very beginning! It's terrible that a young boy had to go through hell. SHAME! And how helpless was Suraj's family thanks to the draconian policies of our Police? Ashamed to call them 'our'. Chalo anyways it's a wonderful morning, Suraj is home, his family finally breathing easy and we all have a fab day to look forward to :-)'
Siddhanth Kapoor: 'what they did to him was TOTALLY WRONG AND UNFAIR.'
Rekha Bhardwaj: 'I feel relieved nd happy for Suraj Pancholi finally gets bail.'
