LAHORE: After a nine-year-long legal battle, Lahore’s family court has ruled actor Meera to be the wife of Sheikh Attiqueur Rahman. Earlier, the court had dismissed the actor's petition to bar Attique from calling her his wife.

In his verdict, judge Babar Nadeem said that the nikkahnama (legal marriage contract) between Meera and Attique is authentic. This means that the two were, in fact, married. The court also stated that all the pictures and other evidence provided to the court were valid and the two were legally married.

It must be noted that earlier Meera told the court that the nikkahnama and pictures were forged. However, the court rejected her claims. According to the 18-page judgement, Meera and Attique tied the knot in 2007, after which the couple also went on a honeymoon.

About five years ago, Meera also alleged that she was married to Captain Naveed.  Speaking to The Express Tribune, the actor’s father, Sarwer Shah said, “When the judgement of Meera’s marriage was passed, my family and I were not present in the court. I believe that our lawyer knows best about the next step to take in this case.”

According to another family member, Meera was hopeful that the judgement would be in her favour, which is also the reason why she was planning to move to the US and settle there.
