It is a day of momentous relief for the Pancholi family, as Sooraj Pancholi was acquitted on the morning of April 28 by a special CBI court from charges of abetment to suicide in the ten-year old case.
Overwhelmed with relief and joy, Sooraj’s mother Zarina Wahab says, “God is great. I always had the greatest faith in our judiciary. Now it has been further strengthened.It has been ten years of torture trauma and stigma for my son .Sooraj has lost so much work because of his undertrial status. He can finally live a normal life. But who will give him back the ten years that he has lost?”
While Sooraj was not immediately available a source close to him reveals that the news has not yetsunk in. The first thing that he needs to do is to pay a visit to his favourite place of worship and thank God his trial-by-fire is finally over.
