Sindh High Court (SHC) has directed Zoheb Hassan, the brother of late pop singer Nazia Hassan, to stop giving statements against his late sister’s husband, Mirza Ishtiaq Baig.
ARY News reports that SHC ordered the 90s popstar to submit his reply in the damage claim filed against him by Mirza Ishtiaq Baig. According to the report, the high court directed the playback singer to submit his detailed response by October 7.
Additionally, he has been directed from making more statements till the next hearing.
Ishtiaq Baig filed a billion rupees damage claim against Zoheb Hassan after the Dosti singer leveled serious allegations against him. The Chehra singer alleged his sister’s husband had something to do with her death on the occasion of Nazia Hassan’s 21st death anniversary.
Zoheb Hassan alleged that the popstar believed she was poisoned by her husband Ishtiaq Baig. He told local news channels that nine pages worth of testimony was provided by an ailing Nazia during her last days.
This testimony was attested by the British High Court, as per Zoheb. He asserts it clearly reads that Nazia wanted a separation from her husband on grounds of ill-treatment. The Boom-Boom singer added that Nazia’s burial was delayed for five months due to an ongoing murder investigation.
Which was being carried out of the grounds that the pop star claimed her husband had been slipping arsenic into her food and tea. The Disco Deewane songstress passed away on August 13, 2000, at the age of 35. She had been battling lung cancer.
