A family court has issued a notice to former Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lt-Gen (r) Zaheerul Islam on a suit filed by Palwasha Zai Khan, who claims to be his wife, The News reported.
According to reports, family court judge Abdul Muneem issued the notice to the ex-ISI director general (DG) for January 20 after Palwasha moved the court for alimony for their four and half-year-old son Shamsherul Islam.
The court, in its notice, has directed Islam to appear before the court in person or submit a reply through his counsel by Jan 20. In case of noncompliance, the court can initiate ex-party proceedings, the notice further read.
Palwasha claims that she had married Islam on May 5, 2015, in Islamabad and had a four and half-year old son with him. Palwasha has reportedly also initiated legal proceedings for divorce.
