LAHORE: In a major breakthrough, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Hamza Shehbaz and his alleged wife Ayesha Ahad have withdrawn the cases they filed against each other. During the hearing on Monday, Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar said Hamza and Aisha would not issue statements against each other.
He remarked that the terms on which they settled cannot be shared with the media. Ahad and Hamza were summoned to the court on Monday over the case filed by the former accusing him of violence, issuing threats to life and usurpation of possessions, including jewellery, a mobile phone and her purse. The woman had alleged that people sent by Hamza forcefully took her laptop, nikahnama (marriage contract), and other documents.
During a hearing in Supreme Court’s Lahore registry, the chief justice told Hamza that Islamic constitution allowed him to divorce Aisha. However, Hamza denied of ever being married to Ahad.
But the latter told the court she married him in 2010.
