Dual Nikah case: Meera placed in judicial custody
Controversial actress Meera arrived at a local court today in Lahore, in response to a dual nikah case filed against her by alleged husband Atiq-ur-Rehman. Proceedings against Meera began and the actress was asked to deposit surety bonds worth Rs 50,000.
As per the court’s orders, till she does not deposit the surety bonds, Meera cannot leave the court premises.
The court also inquired from her as to why she hadn’t appeared in court when she knew a case against her had been filed, to which the actress’ lawyer responded by stating that Meera had been outside the country. As soon as she came back, her lawyer said that she had presented herself before the court.
In the previous proceedings, the court had issued arrest warrants for Meera and directed authorities to present her before the court on 17th July.
It must be borne in mind that her alleged husband Atiq-ur-Rehman had accused Meera of entering into a Nikah with another person named Naveed, when she was already married to him. This he said was a crime, as per law.
