Court Gives CCPO Time To Recover Minor
THE Lahore High Court chief justice on Thursday allowed more time to Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Aslam Tareen for the recovery of minor son of a woman, Asma Zahra, sister in-law of film actress Meera.
Earlier, the CCPO told the court that six special teams had been constituted to trace out the minor and more time was required to accomplish the task. Upon this, the chief justice adjourned hearing of the petition till Aug 9.
Asma had filed a habeas corpus petition for the recovery of her four-month old son Murtaza from illegal custody of her husband Ahsan Abbas, the brother of Meera. Petitioner submitted that her husband had kicked her out of his house along with the baby. However, on June 4 2010 Ahsan accompanied by armed men attacked her parents’ house and took the child with him, she added.
She said a case was lodged against Ahsan Abbas, his brother Hassan Abbas, their mother Shafqat Zahra and other persons but no arrest had been made so far.
A habeas corpus petition was also filed before the district sessions judge and a bailiff was deputed to recover and produce the baby in the court but to no avail, petitioner added.
Petitioner requested the court to order police to recover her son from her husband and produce him before the court for granting his custody to her.
