Karachi, Jan. 13 (ANI): Lollywood actress Meera was held by Pakistani immigration officials at Karachi Airport for a couple of hours for carrying two passports in her name on arrival from the US.
Meera, who went to the US on her second passport and returned on the previous one, may face three years imprisonment with penalty for infringing the Passport Act.
"The passport record showed that she was using two passports and we on the directives of Immigration Cell DG, according to the 6/1/C of the Passport Act, seized both of her passports and later released her after questioning for two hours," the Daily Times quoted FIA Immigration Assistant Director Dr Mushtaq Sheikh, as saying.
"We were only ordered to seize her passports and it depends on the investigation, which will determine her punishment," he added.
The immigration personnel confiscated both her passports and released her after questioning.
She was issued the first passport in 2006 and upon a complaint about missing of the passport she was issued another passport in 2008.
During the interrogation, she said that her employee had found the lost passport and gave it to her while she was abroad so she could not inform the concerned authorities.
Recently, Meera had also been dragged up in a marriage scandal. (ANI)
