Karachi: The Sindh High Court on Wednesday issued notices to the New Karachi police, the advocate general and others on a woman’s petition seeking the quashment of an abduction case against her husband.
Sonia told the court that she married Waqas in Jhang on August 16, but their marriage annoyed her family members and they registered a kidnapping case against her spouse and in-laws. She said her husband did not abduct or force her to marry him, but the New Karachi police were harassing them.
She asked the court to quash the case against her spouse and in-laws. A single bench, headed by Justice Maqbool Baqar, issued notices to the police, the prosecutor general and others, and called their comments on October 10.
The bench also issued notices to the Garden police and others on a petition of a man challenging the alleged unlawful confinement of his wife by his in-laws. Ziaul Hasan submitted that he married Muniba on July 20 against the wishes of his wife’s family.
He said his wife was illegally detained by his in-laws at their house and they had not allowed him to meet her since August 15.
