Sara Ali Khan and Amrita Singh have finally won a legal battle over a highly valued property in Dehradun.
According to reports, Amrita Singh and her cousin sister Tahira Bimbet approached the court to dismiss a plea by Madhusudhan over a 1,70,000 square feet property situated in Dehradun, which is worth crores.
The property, worth crores, had become a centre of dispute after Amrita Singh claimed ownership over it. Tahira too was claiming ownership and was in a legal battle with her brother Madhusudan when he was alive.
After Madhusudhan’s passing, Tahira reportedly requested the civil judge, Ramesh Singh to dismiss her brother’s case and the two ladies even approached the Clementown Police Station in Dehradun last month to claim their rights over the property.
Tahira, who is in her 70’s, requested the judge through her lawyer Manoj Saili since there was no one to challenge her plea, the case should be dismissed. The judge agreed with Saili and dismissed the case.
Once the case started, there was no one to challenge the decision and thus, the court prompting passed the judgement in favour of both Tahira and Amrita. From here on, the Dehradun property will be co-owned by Amrita Singh and Tahira Bimbet.
Madhusudan’s father was an Air Force officer, whose daughter from his first wife was Rukhsana Sultana, Amrita Singh’s mother. Rukhsana Sultana reportedly had close links with Sanjay Gandhi, the younger son of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, during the Emergency.
Rukhsana was a known socialite and has huge political clout because of her proximity to Sanjay Gandhi. However, she withdrew from public life after the Emergency.
Rukhsana was born as Meenu Bimbet, the daughter of Group Captain Madan Mohan Bimbet by his wife Zarina Haque. Group Captain Bimbet was a Hindu and an officer in the Indian Air Force. His wife Zarina was a Muslim, and the daughter of Mian Ehsan-ul-haque, sometime Chief Justice of the princely state of Bikaner in northern Rajasthan. Ehsan-ul-haque came from a landowning family, originally from Jalandhar in Punjab. His other daughter was the actress Begum Para, wife of actor, Nasir Khan, a brother of Dilip Kumar and mother of actor Ayub Khan.
After Rukhsana’s father divorced her mother, he married one Asha Bimbet, from whom he had two children Madhusudan and Tahira Bimbet.
Given the high-profile nature of the case, the Uttarakhand’s BJP government had decided to stay neutral and avoid any immediate intervention in the case.
