The lawsuit was filed against private company executive Asjad Nawaz and other staff, the lawsuit said, after obtaining a corporate dinner permit and decorating a mehndi ceremony here.
The statement of Bilal Tahir, in charge of the suspended shahi fort, has also been recorded in which he stated that dinner was allowed by the royal kitchen. However, the private firm violated it.
