Lahore: LHC cancels bail of alleged abductor
LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday cancelled bail of an alleged abductor, Muhammad Talib. The LHC admonished the petitioner for concealing facts from the court and allowed the complainant to lodge, if he wanted, a case of fake nikah against the petitioner.
Talib, a resident of Gujranwala, wed his sister-in-law without divorcing his wife. Later, the matter was placed before an LHC judge who sent Rehana (Talib’s second wife) to Darul Aman, because she refused to go with her parents. Talib in his bail application submitted that he had wed Rehana with her consent, but her parents had registered an abduction case against him. Counsel for the complainant said that the petitioner had wed Rukhsana, daughter of Rehmat, and later on March 15, 2008 wed his sister-in-law (Rehana) without divorcing her (Rukhsana). Talib told the court that he had divorced Rukhsana, but was unable to produce evidence on which the court dismissed his bail application.
