Jun 13, 2013 01:38 PM IST India India

Mumbai Mumbai Police will oppose the bail plea of actor Suraj Pancholi, arrested in Jiah Khan suicide case. The 22-year-old actor had applied for bail in the sessions court and the hearing is likely to be held tomorrow.

Suraj, the prime accused in the Jiah Khan suicide case, was on Thursday sent to jail till June 27 by a Mumbai court. The investigating officer informed the court that Suraj had deleted messages from his mobile phone and the police needs more time to probe the case.

Meanwhile, the post-mortem report of the actress, who committed suicide in Mumbai, has suggested that there were no external injuries found on the body. Jiah's mother Rabbiya Amin-Khan had alleged that Suraj had beaten up her daughter. Rabbiya had also said that there were injury marks on Jiah's face.

The 22-year-old aspiring actor was arrested on Monday after Jiah committed suicide by hanging herself at her Juhu residence. Suraj had admitted that he was in a live-in relationship with Jiah but denied abetting her suicide.

The arrest was based on a six-page suicide note reportedly written by the 25-year-old actress, and her mother's Rabbiya Amin-Khan's statement to the police. A note written by the actress revealed that she was abused in the relationship. Five other love letters were also found that were exchanged between Jiah and Suraj. The Mumbai Police have revealed that the hand writing on the letter have matched with Jiah's handwriting.

The police is now verifying if the letter is genuine and have also recovered five letters from Suraj's house and Jiah's abortion report. While speaking to CNN-IBN, Suraj's mother Zarina Wahab denied all charges and said her son should be punished if found guilty. She denied that her son was in a live-in relationship with the late actress.

Actress Jiah Khan, who made her debut in 2007 in Ram Gopal Verma's 'Nishabd', was found hanging in her Juhu flat on June 3.
