IHC orders MoF to decide Veena Malik’s kids custody case

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) instructed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoF) to decide the matter of children's custody between actress Veena Malik and her former husband, reported 24News HD TV channel on Monday.

The court asked the ministry to hear the two sides before deciding the dispute and disposed of the case filed by Asad Khattak, the ex-husband of Veena Malik.

Chief Justice Athar Minallah heard the case filed by Asad Khattak seeking custody of his children. Khattak had alleged that Veena Malik had shifted the children to Pakistan despite the orders of a Dubai court in connivance with Pakistan’s foreign office. 

The ministry in its report had declared the stance of Asad Khattak against the facts. The court subsequently disposed off the petition of Khattak with the above instructions.
