* Actress says she only has business dealings with Attiq
LAHORE: The marriage of film star Meera was revealed on Sunday after a dispute arose over Meera’s mother shifting antique furniture belonging to the film star’s ‘husband’ Attiqur Rehman.
Defence-A Police Station House Officer (SHO) Inspector Abid Rasheed told Daily Times that he had seen the nikahnama (marriage certificate), according to which the nikah was solemnised on September 2, 2007. He said the nikahnama was duly registered with the local union council. The SHO said he had also questioned the nikah khawan in Makkah Colony, who confirmed that he had performed the nikah.
Antique furniture: He said Attique had claimed that Meera’s mother, Shafqat Begum, secretly shifted the antiques from Attique’s house without informing him.
The SHO quoted Attique as saying he had asked his mother-in-law not to steal the antiques. Attique said he had gifted the actress a house in G-Block DHA, and did not want her to return it. According to the nikahnama that Attique showed to the police, he should pay Rs 20 million to Meera if he divorces her. He is also bound to pay Rs 0.1 million to her as pocket money. The dower money is stated at Rs 0.5 million.
Pictures of the marriage were also reportedly released to some TV channels. Police came to know of the incident after Attique called on emergency 15 and said his father-in-law, mother-in-law and their other son-in-law Raheel were beating him. Police arrested five men of each party from the scene, and took them to the police station. Later, they were released and told to return to the police station on Sunday at 10pm.
Denied: Meanwhile, in a press conference at her house, Meera denied the marriage. She said she only had business dealings with Attique, and he was trying to blackmail her. She said Attique had attacked her house on Saturday and she would have been killed if she were present there.
