A relative of Dilip Kumar in Pakistan claimed on Friday that he had the ‘Power of Attorney’ of the actor’s mansion located here. He said that Kumar wants to gift him his ancestral property.
Kumar’s relative and former president of the Sarhad Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Fuad Ishaq, told PTI that he had the statutory power of attorney for the said property in Peshawar. He said that 98-year-old Dilip Kumar had got Power of Attorney in 2012.
Old case related to property
The owner of the ancestral house of legendary actor Dilip Kumar, based in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan, refused to sell the house at a price fixed by the government and said that he would demand Rs 25 crore for this property as the administration has imposed very low prices .
The provincial government had imposed the price of this house spread over four marlas i.e. 101 sqm in Peshwar at Rs 80.56 lakh. However, the owner of the house, Haji Lal Muhammad, said that when he was approached by the Peshawar administration, he would ask for Rs 25 crore for this property.
Muhammad said that in 2005 he completed all the formalities and bought this property for 51 lakh rupees and he has all the papers of the house. He said that it is not appropriate for the government to fix the price of this property after 16 years at just Rs 80.56 lakh.
Muhammad said that the property situated in Mohalla Khudabad Kissa Khwani Bazar is very expensive and there is a rate of five crore rupees per marla, in which case he will ask for 25 crore from the administration through his lawyer. He said, “How can four merla properties be sold for a mere 80 lakh rupees?”
