No justice after 35 years: Pakistan woman asks judge to send her ‘back to India’

Published

on

A woman from Bahawalnagar in Pakistan, whose case against land mafia over her five-marla house has been pending for over three decades, asked the Chief Justice of Lahore High Court on Tuesday to send her to India if she couldn’t get justice despite the passage of 35 years, media reports said.

Syeda Shehnaz Bibi told The Express Tribune that she has asked the Chief Justice to send her back to India because her family had migrated to Pakistan at the time of Partition to live a better life as promised by its founders.

“If I cannot get my own house vacated from the hands of land mafia despite spending decades in courts, there is no point staying in this country if I cannot get justice here,” she added, the report said.

According to Shehnaz, the land mafia had occupied 13 marlas vacated by a Hindu family which moved to India, and she took the issue to the chief settlement commissioner who had sought documents regarding the property from the respondents.

As per the documents, the land was illegally occupied and the commissioner cancelled the land deed registered in 1960 as the respondents had not paid the government to acquire the property.

Subsequently, Shehnaz had been allotted a five-marla piece of land by the commissioner after the payment of dues. But the transfer of five marlas in her name angered the accused party who took over her house in retaliation, Express Tribune reported.

During the hearing, Shehnaz urged the Chief Justice to move her case from Bahawalnagar to Lahore as she had been living in Sheikhupura on rent.

“I don’t have money to eat meals twice a day, nor do I have the resources to afford a lawyer,” she told the Chief Justice, adding, “I am fighting this case on my own.”

Chief Justice Ameer Bhatti said the court will summon the other party to decide on the case. In response to her comments regarding sending her to India, Bhatti said he could not comment on her remarks as he was only concerned with her relevant case. However, he assured her of justice.

Mumbai BMW Hit-and-Run Case Accused Mihir Shah Sent To Judicial Custody Till July 30

Mihir Shah, the accused in Mumbai BMW hit-and-run was on Tuesday (July 16) sent to 14-day judicial custody lasting till July 30. A court in Sewri remanded him to judicial custody on the day his police custody was to end. Shah was arrested by Mumbai Police on July 9 after the BMW car driven by him, while drunk, struck and killed 45-year-old Kaveri Nakhwa in Worli while she was riding pillion with her husband on scooter.

Shah was on the run following the fatal accident before he was tracked down and arrested by the police.

At the time of the accident, Kaveri Nakhwa got stuck in the wheels of the car but Mihir drove it for another kilometre in spite of passerbys attempting to alert him. The horrific incident was captured on CCTV cameras. Shah fled the scene after the accident. While her husband escaped with injuries, Kaveri Nakhwa wasn’t as lucky. She was taken to hospital by passerbys but later breathed her last.

After his arrest, Mihir Shah was sent to seven-day police custody.

What happened in the court?

On Tuesday, the investigation officer told the court that Mihir Shah was not co-operating with the investigation and was not revealing who helped him and whom he contacted after the accident.

The prosecution pressed for extension of police custody arguing that police needed to question Mihir Shah further as his non-cooperation was an obstacle in finding his accomplices and more evidence in the matter.

Defence countered by saying that the police had already recorded statements from 27 people and had important evidence, such as rear number plate of the car, in their possession. Extension of police custody, it said, was hence unnecessary.

Mihir Shah is son of Shiv Sena (Shinde) leader Rajesh Shah. The party removed Rajesh Shah from his post following Mihir Shah’s arrest.

Mumbai: A 42-year-old homemaker from Mira Road became the latest target of cyber-criminals who cheated her of more than Rs.13 lakh by promising high returns in stock trading.

In her statement to the police, the complainant who stays in the Delta Garden area said that during her trip to Uttan she came across an advertisement regarding stock trading on Instagram. Upon clicking the provided link, the complainant was added to a WhatsApp group in which tips were provided on stock purchases.

During the initial stages she was able to withdraw Rs. 6,600, prompting her to invest a total of Rs.13.83 lakh for buying shares of various companies through 12 online transactions to specified bank accounts in less than two months.

Though she could see her investments on the online trading application platform, she was unable to make further withdrawals. After seeking a clarification from the group admin, she was asked to transfer Rs. 3.90 lakh towards 30 percent taxes. When she expressed her inability to pump more funds she was removed from the group.

An offence under the relevant sections of the IPC and Information Technology Act-2000 has been registered at the Uttan coastal police station against the yet-to-be identified cybercrooks. Further investigations were underway.
