The court instructed the citizen to pay the ‘haq-mahr’ amount within one month otherwise legal action would be taken against him.
The CJP said that why it was not paid despite it being the right of a woman.
The petitioner’s lawyer said he wanted to withdraw his case and prayed the bench to grant permission for it.
The court said that it would not allow it. The petitioner did not pay the amount for six years and now he filed the case, it remarked.
