Hyderabad Nizam’s daughter to take his ex-wife to court

Posted by on November 20, 2012 0 Comment

Niloufer, the daughter of Mukarram Jah, grandson of the last Nizam of Hyderabad, plans to move court “for not being allowed” to meet her father and also to seek her share in the ancestral property. Niloufer, the daughter of Mukarram Jah and his third ex-wife and former Miss Turkey Manolya Onur, who is in the city along with her mother, blames Princess Esra Birgin, a former wife of Mukarram Jah, the titular Nizam of Hyderabad, for not allowing her to meet or speak to her father for the last two years. Niloufer, who stays in Turkey, says she will now step up her court battle against Esra, who holds the power of attorney for Nizam’s properties, if things do not change. Manolya Onur, who had won a divorce case against her former husband Mukarram Jah, popularly called Nizam VIII, in 2006, said the ancient Chiran Palace worth hundreds of crores of rupees was bequeathed to her daughter and asserted that Esra was planning to make a trust out of Chiran Palace for herself, her daughter and son, which is NilouferÂ’s rightful share from the Nizam’s properties. Esra married Mukarram Jah in 1959. They were married for 15 years. They have a son (Azmat) and a daughter (Shekhya). “Esra, who is already divorced from the Nizam, is now forcing her way into my divorce settlement and asking from my daughter’s rightful share,” Manolya claimed. “The court case has not finished despite six years. She (Esra) is acting to get everything herself and trying to sell the lands and whatever he (Nizam) got, and now we will have no right to ask anything because she has got power of attorney. We are not beggars on the street. Why we are asking for it (Chiran Palace) is because it belongs to Niloufer,” she said.
