she suffered mental distress as well as hair loss.
Pakistani singer Hadiqa Kiani has been sued by a woman over alleged hair loss.
The woman demanded Rs. 42 million (£194,000) in damages on December 3, 2020, after visiting a franchise outlet of the musician’s beauty salon in Faisalabad.
The woman allegedly visited the salon on October 10, 2020, for a hair straightening appointment.
However, the treatment reportedly resulted in the complainant suffering hair loss.
The woman claimed that it was substandard products which caused her hair to fall out, distorting her appearance.
The lawsuit stated that she suffered mental distress as well as hair loss.
It further added that staff members did not behave in the correct manner when approached to resolve the issue.
After filing the lawsuit, a local court has summoned the salon’s franchise owner Hadiqa Kiani in front of the Deputy Commissioner of Faisalabad, as well as the district health officer on December 16, 2020.
While Hadiqa has not responded to the lawsuit, it was reported that she would file a reply in court over the matter.
This is not the first time that the singer has been embroiled in controversy.
In 2017, British website Metro had reported that Hadiqa was detained at Heathrow Airport for allegedly smuggling cocaine.
It was claimed that she had concealed two kilograms of cocaine in bags of coffee in her suitcase.
Hadiqa was reportedly arrested and handed over to the Port Authority Police. Following which, they claimed, she would face prosecution by the London District Attorney, for drug smuggling charges.
Metro also stated that the cocaine roughly amounted to more than £80,000.
In addition, the Customs and Border Protection Police Officers had taken Hadiqa Kiani into a separate search room during which, they discovered the second bag of cocaine.
This prompted the singer to tweet several times, expressing her anger and denouncing the reports as fake, as she said she had been in Lahore at the time.
She said: “Completely false. I dare anyone to associate drugs with my name. Don’t believe me, contact UK authorities.”
Hadiqa Kiani also uploaded a photo with her mother and son, spending time in Lahore.
She also mentioned that another local Pakistani newspaper had been spreading the news. It was later taken down.
Hadiqa appeared on Pakistani news channels, ARY and SAMAA, to slam the rumours.
She had conveyed her disappointment that the UK publication, as well as the local newspaper, had reported rumours without verification.
