LAHORE: Veteran actress Babra Sharif yesterday withdrew the petition she had filed few days ago against a renter jeweler in Lahore. She took this step after Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar concluded the argument on this order that Babra Sharif should get the rent on time. The two-member apex court bench headed by CJP Saqib Nisar heard the case at the Supreme Court’s Lahore Registry. CJP Nisar said the jeweler was paying the actress full rent.
The actress had said in her plea that the jeweler tried to make the property controversial and attempted to bring down its market value. “Though, he is paying the rent, but he is making my property controversial. The jeweler has closed the shop which is spoiling value of the place,” Babra said. Chief Justice Nisar said, “The owner should be concerned with the rent. This does not concern you whether the shop is open or close.” The top court had on January 6 issued a notice to a jeweler on the petition filed by the TV actress seeking reclamation of her encroached property.
