LAHORE - The Lahore High Court on Friday sought explanation from the Ministry of Interior and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) as how the former husband of fashion model Sofia Mirza had runaway from the country along with two minor twin daughters despite the fact that their names were placed on Exit Control List (ECL). Justice Ijaz Ahmed Chaudhry passed the order after the FIA Punjab informed the court that Sofias husband, Omer Farooq, had managed to escape from the country on September 9. The court also warned the guarantor to produce the children in the court on October 13; otherwise his surety money of Rs 2.5 million would be confiscated. Annoyed over authorities serious lapses, the irate judge also directed the FIA to identify the persons who helped Omer get fresh passport while his old passport was already in the custody of Sofia. During the hearing of a earlier case, both sides had reached a compromise in August about the custody of children but the Omer violated that deal and fled away from the country along with the two minor daughters. Afterwards, Sofia Mirza moved a fresh petition to recovery her daughters. As per the terms of the compromise, Omer Farooq was allowed to meet his daughters after every 15 days at Avari Hotel from 11 am to 4 pm, as directed by the guardian judge. A court bailiff will take the children to the hotel and the father will hand over his passport to the bailiff before the meeting, the judge had ordered. The court also issued directions to put the names of the twins in the exit control list so they could not be shifted from Pakistan. Farooq was also directed to deposit a surety bond of Rs 2.5 million with the LHC deputy registrar. According to Omer, who had married Mirza on February 16, 2006, he found out that Sofia had married just to extort money from him. He said he had filed a petition in the guardian court, but it gave his daughters to their mother without asking for his reply.
