About two months after Haryana's former assistant advocate general Anuradha Bali alias Fiza was found dead in her house under mysterious circumstances, her sisters moved the court seeking release of her moveable and immoveable assets.

Fiza's sisters - Monika Sharma, Anjali Ramsoondur and Aditi Arya - filed a civil suit in the district courts on Saturday to lay stake on her property and other assets. Fiza has left behind a house in Sector 48, which is estimated to cost around Rs 2 crore, Rs 1.49 crore cash along with jewelry worth Rs 30 lakh that was recovered by the police from her three different bank lockers, apart from Rs 92,86,160 in cash and 1.5 kg gold and 800 grams of silver recovered from her house.

As Fiza has not left behind any will, her sisters have sought release of her assets in the capacity of being her legal heirs. In the civil suit, Monika Sharma has sought directions for release of moveable and immoveable property like cash/jewellery and transfer of house, etc. in their name, as they were Fiza's class 1 legal heirs.

As per legal experts, Fiza's sisters can claim the money only after getting a succession certificate issued from the court.

The civil suit would come up for hearing on December 10 before the court of Varun Nagpal, civil judge, senior division, SAS Nagar.
