A woman and her son beat her 60-year-old husband at district and sessions court for not disclosing the fact that he had seven children from his first wife.
Muhammad Saleem had sought a case against his second wife and her children for allegedly robbing him of Rs. 300,000 cash and valuables at gun point.
On Friday, Saleem appeared for the hearing where his second wife, Salma Bibi, and their son Muhammad Usman were also present.
Bibi and Usman hit Saleem when he asked her not to divorce him during the hearing for the sake of their children.
Usman, on the directions of his mother, kicked her father and slapped him, asking why he had hidden the fact that he had seven children from his first wife.
Salma Bibi said her husband had told her that he did not have children from his earlier marriage.
The judge had sought comments from Iqbal Town police and the police had told the court that it was a family dispute involving two marriages, and less likely to be a crime. The judge dismissed the petition.
