Dawn

MARDAN: A widow here on Wednesday claimed that owners of Al-Hamra Builders, Mardan, had received Rs32 million from her for allotment of plot, but she was not allotted the plot even after passage of five years.
Aneela Begum, widow of Sangin Khan and resident of Gahri Kapura, told mediapersons at Mardan Press Club that after the death of her husband in 2002 she deposited his pension money in saving centre and was receiving monthly profit from there.
She said that she withdrew the money when some relatives and neighbours advised her to buy a plot. She claimed that she had paid Rs32 million to owners of Al-Hamra Builders for allotment of plot, but they started delaying tactics to allot a plot in her name.
She said that after passage of five years they had now refused to pay her Rs32 million back when she demanded it.

The widow pointed out that some conciliators, including ex-district naib nazim Ibrahim Biland and Gul Afsar, came forward for a patch-up between her and the builders. As per agreement, she was handed over a cheque for Rs10 million which bounced when she visited a bank to cash it.
After that she registered an FIR in the city police station against the responsible persons, including Sirajuddin, Hasamuddin and several others. Aneela Begum said that she was a widow while her rivals were influential people and that was why local police officials were nottaking action against them. She appealed to the Chief Justice of Pakistan to provide her speedy and cheap justice.
