LAHORE:


An additional district and sessions judge on Wednesday sought comments from the Old Anarkali SHO again on a petition filed by First Capital Group CEO Aamna Taseer seeking the registration of a case against her erstwhile secretary.


The court had previously sought comments from police but no one had appeared on behalf of the department. The court sought comments in this regard by July 23 at the hearing. Separately, Sajid Bashir Shaikh submitted a power of attorney on Taseer’s behalf.Petitioner Amna Taseer, the widow of former governor Salmaan Tasser, told the court that she had an office at Fortress Stadium. She said her former secretary Sumaira Ahmed owed her Rs300,000. She said Ahmed had given her six cheques for Rs300,000 from Standard Chartered Bank on The Mall.

Taseer said Ahmed had issued the cheques but proscribed the bank from cashing them.  She said the accused had confessed to giving the instruction. Taseer said she had refused to return the outstanding sum after repeated requests. She asked the court to direct the concerned SHO to register an FIR against Ahmed.
