Pop star Annie’s nuptials spoiled

- September 02, 2012 - Updated 346 PKT - From Web Edition

LAHORE: A brawl between guests and policemen Saturday night ruined pop star Annie’s nuptials here, Geo News reported.


According to reports that poured in from Lahore, Mahia-fame Annie’s wedding party revelries crossed the 12:00 AM deadline set by the Punjab government for such events at marriage halls.


Sources told Geo News that police barged in the wedding venue to arrest the groom, Malik Nouraiz Awan, for violating the law.


As the police tried to arrest the groom, friends and the family jumped in to save him from spending his first wedding night in jail. As a result the wedding hall turned into a fight club. Guests stood like a wall between the aggressive policemen and groom. The lawmen took a strong exception to the obstruction they faced in carrying out their duties.


Ultimately an FIR was lodged against fifteen persons including Annie’s father, Dr Khalid, father-in-law Mushtaq Awan, and a close relative Malik Shahbaz Awan under sections 353, 186, 148, and 148. All of them have been accused of obstructing the law and attacking the uniformed policemen.


Later talking to Geo News, Annie’s husband, said that they did not violate the deadline.


“We were about to leave the hall, when the police crashed in and started beating up the guests. Our jubilation was spoiled for our not submitting to their bribery demands worth Rs1.5 million”, said Malik Nauraiz.


On the other hand, SP Cantt, Maroof Wahla, rejected Malik Nauraiz’s accusations as baseless.

i think the whole country is in a major mess because law has always been taken for granted. i support the police and punjab govt that they stood strong to enforce the law.. celebrity or no celebrity, everyone should respect the law!

Media talk shows in Pakistan are talking on daily basis of lawlessness, corruption of Law enforcement in Pakistan. Politicians claim on T.V they will investigate, form a commission and nothing happens according to media. How can a corrupt politician correct the corrupt officers who are also politicized? I am waiting for Imran Khan/PTI to come into power because he has solution for this problem. Annie :) next time finish your wedding on time and follow law. Opportunist are everywhere.

What right has the goverment got to tell ppl how and when they should spend thier money they can not provide the basic necessities but are happy to interfere in things that are should be decided by individuals pathetic

I find it extremely ironic that our useless police fails to show up every single time when someone's life or property is in danger but it is incredibly efficient when there is any chance of making extra cash.
