Zohaib Hassan, the brother of acclaimed late pop singer Nazia Hassan, has recently said that Nazia’s then-husband, Ishtiaq Baig, had “fed her something” harmful and treated her badly.

In an interview, Zohaib Hassan said that her sister was poisoned by her husband and this caused her cancer. “Nazia had one of her ovaries removed after she developed ovarian cancer,” said Zohaib.

She was in remission when she went back to her husband, he said. Soon she developed throat cancer, and her doctor was puzzled, Zohaib added.

Zohaib said his sister was so tired of all the mistreatment at Baig’s hands that she went for divorce before her death. “Marrying her off to Baig was our biggest mistake,” Zohaib added.

 “I did not level any allegations. These are things Nazia wrote herself,” he said.

Zohaib explained that in the UK, when someone is not well enough to appear in court, a solicitor is appointed, to whom a statement is provided under oath.

“The solicitor met Nazia and recorded a 10-page long testimony,” Zohaib claimed.

“The testimony clearly states that the man had her eat or drink something and treated her very badly.”

“We had not seen the court document earlier. I found it now because I was going through papers after my father passed away 10 months ago,” the singer added.

“Whenever the day comes, of either Nazia’s birthday or death anniversary, this man displays Nazia’s medical records on TV and provides false information that the divorce did not occur. Such things deeply hurt my mother and our family,” he said.

Nazia Hassan passed away in London at the age of 35 from lung cancer. On August 13, it will be 21 years since the Queen of Pop died.
