Pak-Iranian couple fights for son’s custody in SHC

A battle between estranged parents of Pakistani and Iranian origins for the custody of their six-year-old child has put the latter in deep trouble, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

And when the Sindh High Court (SHC) took up the petition filed by the man’s Iranian wife for a hearing on Monday, Justice Saleem Mehsar refused to listen to the parties further as their lawyers started argumentation in front of him. 

According to the petition, Pakistan’s Noman Khan and his Iranian wife Azadi Sardari had tied the knot in UAE seven years back. 

Zia Awan, counsel for Sardari, said his client had moved to Karachi along with her husband in 2019. He told the court that since she was not willing to stay in Pakistan, her child be given to her. 

Counsel for Noman, however, argued that his client’s boy could not be sent abroad. 

Noman said he was ready to submit the child’s passport to the court. 

When the judge remarked that if the child’s mother wanted to see her child, the court could give orders for that, her counsel replied that Sardari only wanted the custody of her child. “She wants to take her to Iran,” he told the court. 

However, later, irked by constant argumentation between the two lawyers, the judge refused to hear the petition further and left the room.  

Zia Awan, counsel for Iranian woman Azadi Sardari, said he would file a petition in the court for the early hearing of the petition regarding the child’s custody.
