A high court in the United Kingdom on Wednesday ruled against Pakistan in the decades-old Hyderabad Fund case. The case pertains to the Hyderabad Fund, an amount of £35 million transferred to Pakistan by Osman Ali Khan, the 7th Nizam of the former princely state of Hyderabad, before its forcible annexation to India.
The court has ruled in favour of the heirs of the Nizam, stating that “there is no illegality alleged that is sufficient to cause this Court to prevent the Princes and India – specifically, India – from asserting her claim to the Fund.”
