EASTENDERS star Amar Adatia has revealed that the Panesars father was sent to prison by their scheming mother Suki.
The actor – who plays Jags Panesar in the BBC soap – bows out this week after his contract came to an end.
His character Jags was arrested last night after being framed by mum Suki for the brutal assault on Martin Fowler – that was actually carried out by his brother Vinny.
But now actor Amar has revealed Jags isn't the first family member to have been set up for a life behind bars by Suki.
He said: "Jags went against her and being the strong women she is, just like their father in the past, anyone that goes against her doesn't tend to fare so well.
"He knew what the right thing to do was in that Martin situation but he couldn't – he wasn't allowed to."
The scheming mother – who is played by actress Balvinder Sopal in the BBC soap – showed just how ruthless she could be at dealing with her wayward children.
A frosty Suki was already furious after finding Jags’ bloodied jeans from the aftermath of the attack in the laundry basket for anyone to find.
But after she was called to the Vic for a surprise from Jags – and he revealed he loved Habiba, Suki lost it.
The ice queen stood up, placed a £20 note on the table and uttered the least convincing “welcome to the family” ever heard before walking out.
She then walked out and met up with the police detective investigating the attack on Martin in The Minute Mart.
“It’s very hard as another to know how best to protect your children,” she told him.
“You spend your life terrified that something’s going to happen to them – desperate to insulate them from the harsh realities of life.
“And then one day you realise you might have gone too far. That you might be responsible for making bad choices.
“As much as this pains me to say it, I can’t protect that boy anymore.”
She pushed over a package containing Jags’ jeans and gave it to the detective.
Fans were in shock at how easily Suki threw Jags under the bus.
One wrote: "Speechless Sending your own son to prison. How vile is Suki, dear god."
A second said: "This Suki woman is a different level of mad".
Another added: "Suki is so evil."
