In a yet another but different inheritance-related dispute, two sons of late Syed Minni Hussain – a well-known spiritual leader of Daska in Sialkot district – removed the bodies of their parents from their graves for reburial at a separate shrine established at Jaiser Wala village.

According to 24NewsHD TV channel, the son-in-law of Double Shah – the infamous con whose real name was Sibtul Hasan Shah – is also among the accused. The bodies were removed in the absence of other three brothers in the struggle for the custodianship.

The details of the case reveal that the eldest son of Munir Hussain – known in public by his nickname Minni Hussain – bought a plot in his name using an amount of Rs20 million reserved for a mosque and the attached madrasa.

The late spiritual leader, who also served in Pakistan Army, had died three years. He was originally from Jamke Cheema. One year later, his wife was laid to rest next Minni’s grave within the shrine’s premises after her death.

Minni had left Rs20 million for the construction of mosque and madrasa, but his eldest son – Double Shah’s son-in-law – misused the money for buying land for himself, triggering a dispute among the five brothers.

When the three younger brothers were out of their home for attending a religious gathering, the elder ones took the family women hostage, dug the graves and shifted the bodies to Jaiser Wal.

However, the officials from Motra Police Station reached the spot and arrested the two while they were busy in burying the parents again at the new shrine which now has been locked.
