Parveen Babi's will cleared by Bombay HC; 80 % attributed to social welfare

Her uncle, Muradkhan Babi, was the one who produced the will in 2005. However it was challenged by her paternal relatives claiming that it was a fake document. They have now dropped the charges and told the court that they do not want to fight the case any longer.

Hindustan Times reports that Justice Gautam Patel validated the will on 14 October and settled the dispute over Babi's legacy that includes a four bedroom Juhu flat, a Junagadh haveli, Rs. 20 lacs, jewellery and other investments. The will will be administered to 82-year-old Muradkhan by 23 December this year.

Mumbai Mirror reports that as per her wish, a trust will be formed headed by her uncle, which will use seventy per cent of her property in the welfare of disadvantaged women and children of the Babi community of Junagadh, the birthplace of the Namak Halaal actress.  Remaining ten per cent of the funds will be given to her alma mater in Ahmedabad, St. Xavier's College where the actress studied English literature.

Parveen Babi, who had not appeared in films after 1990, was found dead in her Juhu flat on 22 January, 2005. Investigations revealed that her death was caused due to complications related to diabetes. Months after her death Muradkhan came forward with a will that he said was drafted in 2002.
