LAHORE: A family court in Lahore on Monday ruled that the Pakistani actor Meera is in fact legally the wife of Attiqur Rehman.
Announcing the judgement in a marriage suit which had been filed nine years ago by the Pakistani film actress, Family Judge Babar Nadeem dismissed Meera’s petition that her nikkah to Attiqur Rehman was forged.
“The nikkahnama is not false,” the judge said while reading out an 18-page written verdict on Meera’s application against ‘jactitation of marriage’.
The court verdict pointed out that a nikkahkhwan confirmed Meera’s nikkah to Rehman.
In July 2009, Meera had requested a family court to restrain Rehman from calling her his wife. In her petition, she had told the court that she had not solemnized the marriage.
Further, she had said the nikahnama produced by Rehman was a sham and there was no record of it in the union council concerned.
Arrest warrants were also issued for Meera in 2015 on an application filed by Rehman.
Rehman had earlier claimed that he and Meera tied the knot on September 2, 2007.
