The Sindh High Court (SHC) has stopped the brother of late pop singer Nazia Hassan, Zoheb Hassan, to submit his reply in the damage claim notice filed against him by Mirza Ishtiaq Baig.
Zoheb Hassan has been directed to submit his response in Ishtiaq Baig’s Rs1 billion damage claim notice after the sibling of Nazia Hassan late levelled serious allegations on her 21st death anniversary.
The high court directed Zoheb Hassan to submit his detailed response by October 7. Zoheb Hassan has also been ordered to refrain from giving statements till the next hearing.
On August 13, singer Zoheb Hassan had alleged that his sister, pop star Nazia Hassan, believed she was poisoned by her husband Ishtiaq Baig.
Zoheb had claimed that nine pages worth of testimony provided by an ailing Nazia during her last days, and attested by the British High Court, clearly reads that Nazia wanted a separation from her husband on grounds of ill-treatment.
According to Zoheb, Nazia’s burial was delayed for five months due to an ongoing murder investigation because of Nazia’s claims that her husband had been slipping arsenic in her food and tea.Zoheb had also claimed that Nazia, who is believed to have died of cancer, had said that her cancer had been in remission.
