Gilani's daughter in marital dispute

Last updated: 13 June, 2010
Lahore, Jun 13 (PTI):

Acting on a petition filed by her estranged husband, a Pakistani court has barred the daughter of Premier Yousuf Raza Gilani from sending her nine-year-old son out of the country.

Khurram Khan, the estranged husband of Gilani's daughter Fizza Batool, filed a petition in a guardian court in Lahore in which he sought custody of his son Asfandyar.

He said in the petition that he feared Fizza, who belongs to an influential family, could send the minor boy to a place where he would be out of the jurisdiction of Pakistani courts.
Responding to the petition, the guardian court yesterday restrained Fizza from taking the boy out of Pakistan. The court's order will be valid till June 24.

Khan also demanded custody of his son. He said that his wife had been living with her parents for the past four years and that he was not allowed to meet his son during this period.

Surriya Farzana, the counsel for Khan, has filed another civil suit against Fizza in a family court to demand the "performance of conjugal rights."

The family court has summoned Fizza to appear before it on June 26.
In his suit, Khan said his wife had been living with her parents for the past four years without any valid reason.

He said he had withdrawn another conjugal rights suit which he filed earlier after both sides reached a settlement.

Khan contended that the Gilani family had not fulfilled any condition of the compromise.
He asked the family court to order Fizza to start living with him and to fulfil her conjugal rights.
