LAHORE: A courtroom witnessed quite an emotional scene when two children were handed over to their mother who won their custody from her former husband on Thursday.

Laiba, 5, and Mannan, 4, started crying when they came to know that they would be handed over to their mother. The children held their father tightly into their arms.

Fareeha had filed the habeas petition in Lahore High Court saying that her former husband divorced her and “snatched her children”.

The petitioner said she tried her best for their recovery but her ex did not allow her a meeting with her children. She further requested the court to grant her the custody of the kids.

After hearing both the sides, Justice Miss Aalia Neelum decided the case and handed the children over to their mother. She also directed the respondent man to approach the Guardian Courts for the custody of children.–Staff Reporter
