Former law minister arrested in Islamabad
ISLAMABAD: Former law minister Wasi Zafar was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly creating ruckus during proceedings in the Islamabad High Court (IHC), however, he got relief after tendering unconditional apology to the court. The former law minister appeared before the court in a family dispute case but during hearing, he erupted with emotions and violated the decorum of the court.
The IHC bench headed by Justice Shaukat Siddiqui ordered his arrest on his reckless act. The court was hearing the case of former daughter-in-law of Wasi Zafar who had filed a plea seeking custody of her kids after she was divorced by his son.
During hearing, counsel for the petitioner, Arsalan Qureshi, apprised the bench that her client had two minor kids but their father was not handing over their custody to her. The bench also ordered production of the minors before the court on Thursday.
