LAHORE - The Lahore High Court chief justice on Monday required the advocate general Punjab to approach the DPO Rawalpindi to get the needful done to recover and produce a minor son of a Polish woman before the court on February 26 from the custody of his father. The chief Justice was hearing a habeas corpus petition filed by Justyna Bernadetsa of Poland for the recovery of her son from the custody of her former husband, Muhammad Khan. Further hearing of the case was adjourned till Feb 26. The court directed the DPO Rawalpindi to adopt all legal means to recover and produce respondent Muhammad Khan and his minor son in the court on next date of hearing. On Monday, Muhammad Shafique, brother of the respondent, was produced before the court and he stated on oath he had no knowledge about the whereabouts of Muhammad Khan and his minor son. On the other hand, the petitioners counsel informed the court he himself accompanied the petitioner to the neighborhood of the respondent and found that Muhammad Khan was present in a house along with his son. But the respondent concealed himself and his minor son somewhere after knowing that the petitioner was searching for him. Earlier, police could not trace out Muhammad Khan or his minor son because, according to the police, address of the respondent-father was found incorrect. Petitioner Justyna Bernadetsa of Poland through her counsel submitted that she married Muhammad Khan belonging to Rawalpindi some years back in Poland. She gave a birth to a baby boy. Later they shifted to Pakistan along with their child Muhammad Al-Aqsa (3) and started living in Rawalpindi. However, due to some unavoidable reasons Muhammad Khan divorced her but kept the child in his possession. She said the act of her former husband was illegal as their son being minor should be given in the mothers custody. She requested the court to get her child recovered from the illegal custody of his father and hand him over to her. Suo moto hearing deferred The Lahore High Court chief justice on Monday deferred hearing of a suo moto case about the recovery of a girl belonging to Gujrat who was allegedly abducted by some influential of the area. The chief justice had taken suo moto on an application of Irshad Bibi who had complained about the non-recovery of her 14-year-old daughter Humaira from the illegal custody of two accused Irfan and Sohail. Earlier, an investigating officer submitted a report in the court saying the alleged abducted girl had contracted marriage against the will of her parents and was living with her husband. Police report says the complainant woman was a habitual litigant and she aimed at taking out some financial benefit from the accused party through the case of abduction. However, the investigating officer said the police were making all efforts to trace the girl and some time was required for this purpose. On this, Chief Justice Khawaja Muhammad Sharif adjourned hearing and directed the police to produce the abducted girl in the court on March 9. The complainant had submitted her daughter had been abducted by the accused Arfan and Sohail on Oct 10, 2009. In this regard, an FIR under section 365-B PPC was also registered at police station Kukrali, Gujrat. She alleged the accused being influential persons tried to get the case cancelled by way of a compromise. On Nov 28, 2009, on the eve of Eid-ul-Azha the accused party subjected the applicant and her family to torture and an FIR under sections 354/452/148/149 PPC was registered at the same police station. In order to restrain the applicant and her husband from the prosecution of the said cases the accused persons dispossessed them from their house and also expelled them along with their four school-going children from the village and since then they were on the roads, the complainant said.
