She is fed up with an interminable legal battle that she has been fighting for more than three decades on a property of over five marls.
On Tuesday, a woman asked the Chief Justice of the Lahore High Court, Justice Muhammad Ameer Bhatti, to “send her to India” if she was unable to get justice here.
Syeda Shahnaz had initially filed a request to transfer her case from Bahawalpur to the principal seat of the court.
The applicant, who lives in a rented house in Sheikhupura, stated that her life would be threatened by the unlawful occupants of her property if she traveled to Bahawalpur to continue the case.
Telling her ordeal, she said that she was nine years old when the litigation in question began and that she was now 45 years old.
She alleged that influencers in the area occupied her house and she’d been forced to run from pillar to post for the past 35 years just to secure her claim.
Frustrated with the endless chain of litigation, Shahnaz requested the chief justice to send her to India.
“Maybe the Indian courts will give me justice,” she added.
The Chief Justice issued notices to the defendants on the transfer request and adjourned the hearing for a week.
However, Chief Justice Bhatti reminded the plaintiff that the court had no jurisdiction to order the issuance of a visa to India.
