Mumbai, June 11 (IANS) Actor Aditya Pancholi's son Sooraj Pancholi, arrested in connection with the suicide of actress Jiah Khan, was Tuesday sent to police custody till June 13 by a court here, a lawyer said.

Zameer Khan, Sooraj Pancholi's lawyer, told reporters: "We are completely supporting the police for the investigation since day one. We are completely supporting them and we have submitted Sooraj's laptop, phone and iPad to police."

"He will be in custody till June 13. So far, chargesheet has not been filed," he said, soon after Sooraj was presented before a magistrate.

Sooraj, son of actor couple Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab, was arrested Monday after being booked under penal provisions for allegedly abetting Jiah's suicide.
