Civil court issues arrest warrants for Meera


LAHORE: A civil judge on Friday issued arrest warrants for Pakistani film actor Meera, on an application filed by her ‘self-proclaimed’ husband Attiqur Rehman.


The judge has ordered Defence-A police to produce her before the court on the next date of hearing.

In his application, Meera’s husband claimed the actress married another man before legally divorcing him first. “She is committing fornication. It is against Islam and the law of Pakistan,” he said.

Attique told the court to register an FIR against her under relevant provision of the law.

Earlier, Attique had filed another application for Meera to be medically tested to confirm that she is a virgin, which was dismissed in April 2011.

As per details, a jactitation of marriage suit was filed by Meera against her alleged husband contending that their wedding pictures and marriage certificate produced by Atique were fake. Meera alleged that he did all of this in a bid to gain cheap publicity.

Later, Atique filed two applications in the court, one to seek Meera’s medical test and the other to check the status of the house in which Meera was living. He claimed that the house in which Meera was living in belonged to him.

Meanwhile, Atique’s counsel has sent a legal notice to Meera regarding a private TV channel programme, Kon Bnay ga Meera ka Patti. He contended in his notice that yet the court had to decide the jactitation of the marriage suit.
