LAHORE - Actress Veena Malik on Tuesday allegedly pressurised SHO Mohammad Abid of the Ghalib Market Police Station for the registration of an FIR against her former friend cricketer Mohammad Asif. Reportedly, the thespian desired to get registered a fraud case against Asif, but the police flatly refused to do so as they had already been restricted by a court stay-order from doing the same. Veena repeatedly forced the police to register case against Asif, which the police claimed was a fake one. The police investigators told her that they would have to check the nature of the plea before registering any FIR. She was in a hurry and intended to seek illegal favour from police, SHO Abid said while talking to The Nation. He further said that in a situation when the police had already received a stay order, they needed to inquire the situation from both the parties and then they could reach a decision whether to register case or suggest some other alternative. He said that police were bound to obey the court orders, adding that in special circumstances they were authorised by the court to collect evidence from both the parties. The SHO said that according to Veena, Asif borrowed over Rs 10 million from her when his career was in jeopardy over doping allegations in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and when he lost favours with the PCB following his detention at Dubai airport for carrying an illegal drug. Asif is continuously denying the allegations laid by the actress saying his chequebook was stolen some months back, and a case in this regard had been lodged against unidentified person(s), he added. He maintained that police were investigating the matter and the decision whether to register this case or not would be made in a couple of days. A police source requesting anonymity informed that Veena came with an application marked by SSP Investigation Zulfiqar Hameed to the Ghalib Market Police Station SHO. She thought the police would do her a favour as she had entered the police station with an application favoured by the SSP Investigation. She got angry on knowing that the police officials could do nothing without solid evidence, he added. He further said she also snatched the application from ASI Tanveer and went away from the police station but came back and submitted her application again. The police sources said that 'short-tempered Veena did not know that police were unable to take any action before receiving any solid information. An educated person could not even think of behaving the way she did, they further said. Earlier, Asifs lawyer Rana Ali told the reporters that no case could be registered against Asif as he never issued any cheque to the actress. Moreover, he added that Asif had got stay order from a civil court so he was free from any case till April 20.
