Pakistani actor Meera has appealed to the authorities concerned for justice to protect her life and her family members from the land mafia and goons trying to attack and grab her family property.
The Baaji star broke down into tears during a press conference at Lahore Press Club on Tuesday. With a trembling voice, she expressed her fear for the lives of her family that are in great danger. An alleged mafia chief named Mian Shahid hurled life threats at them.
Meera demanded the government for justice and to arrest the goons involved in the attack immediately. Meera said she had recently returned to Pakistan after six months stay aboard. During that time, the grabber attempted on her mother’s life. “The attackers are fraudulent. They tried to kill my mother and brother”. She has submitted an application to get security and support from the government in this case.
The actor said had the CCPO not intervened, there would have been a loss of life and property, referring to an incident in which she said her family was targeted. Meera claimed to have requested Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid to put the name of Shahid Mahmood on the Exit Control List. “If anyone can prove that I’m the one who is wrong or a liar. I will accept whatever punishment will be given to me”, she further said.
