Woman claiming to be Junaid Jamshed’s third wife files petition, seeks share in inheritance
She claimed that children from Junaid's first wife had obtained a succession certificate from the court by concealing the fact about her heirship.
The Sindh High Court has directed the legal heirs of the late singer-turned-preacher Junaid Jamshed to maintain the status quo with respect to his moveable and immovable properties. The court directed after a lawsuit was filed by his third wife, who is seeking inheritance share as per the Muslim laws.
Back on the 7th of December, 2016, Pakistan International Airlines’ ATR crashed near Havelian. As many as 42 passengers, including Junaid Jamshed, his second wife, and cabin crew, lost their lives.
Plaintiff Raazia Muzaffar, a resident of Islamabad, submitted that she was the widow of late Junaid Jamshed, who had married her on 20th of October, 2009, and bore her expenses till his death by sending money every month.
She claimed that children from Junaid’s first wife had obtained a succession certificate from the court by concealing the fact about her heirship, and she was being denied her due right of inheritance from her late spouse.
She mentioned the details of moveable and immovable properties worth millions of rupees as per the succession certificate. She submitted that she had approached the court for revocation of the letter of administration issued in favor of Junaid Jamshed’s son and other children from his first wife. The court had granted the status quo in the matter.
She requested the court to grant her the share of inheritance in the estate of the deceased as per the Muslim laws. She requested SHC to furthermore direct the administration, partition, and distribution of the estate of the deceased amongst all legal heirs as per their respective shares.
After the preliminary hearing of the lawsuit, the SHC’s single bench, headed by Justice Syed Hasan Azhar Rizvi, issued notices to the legal heirs of Junaid Jamshed and others for September 2. In the meantime, the court directed the defendants to maintain the status quo in respect of the deceased’s all properties.
