As I have previously discussed, the wife of Urooj Khan, Shabana Ansari, supported that his body be exhumed after it was determined Khan was poisoned with cyanide. Apparently, Khan was already in an estate battle "with several of his siblings over control of his estate, including his lottery winnings." Khan died suddenly shortly after he tried to collect his lottery winnings. Now, his brother, Imtiaz, and his sister, Meraj Khan, have won an order from a probate judge to place a freeze on the lottery check so that Khan's widow cannot cash the check. The brother and sister's concern was that Khan's daughter from a previous marriage would not receive a portion of the estate. Ansari denied the accusation that she had removed assets from the estate.
