A court in Lahore on Friday issued the arrest warrants of singer Rabi Pirzada for keeping wild animals as pets, according to reports coming in from the provincial capital.
A hearing into the case was conducted in the Model Town court today during which Pirzada failed to appear despite summons being issued weeks ago. The court issued the arrest warrants of the Lahore-based singer after reprimanding her for the callous attitude towards the whole affair.
Earlier, the Punjab Wildlife Protection and Parks Department has lodged a complaint against singer-turned-host Rabi Pirzada for allegedly keeping exotic animals as pets at her beauty salon in Lahore.
The Shor Sharaba starlet owns exotic cobras, crocodiles and majestic lions of which she often post pictures on social media that landed her in hot water.
The authorities took action against Pirzada after fresh photos with her wild pets surfaced on social media. The wildlife department issued her a legal notice in accordance with the the Punjab Wildlife (Protection, Conservation and Management) Act of 1974 (amended 2007), which can lead to imprisonment for two to three years with a fine of up to Rs 20,000.
The wildlife team, however, is still in search of the exotic animals as the actress mentioned fake addresses on her social media accounts, district wildlife officer Tanveer Janjua told local media.
