The sessions court in its order in connection with actor Jiah Khan's death, said that it would commence trial against Suraj Pancholi on February 28.

Meanwhile, Jiah's mother Rabia Khan sought time to file an appeal in the Supreme Court against the High Court's order rejecting her plea for formation of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate the case. Apart from rejecting the plea, the HC also lifted the stay on the trial proceedings.

After Rabia requested for time to file the appeal, Pancholi's lawyer Prashant Patil asked the court to start trial against his client as the case had been delayed for the past four years.
