Father asked to pay maintenance to daughter

Staff Report

LAHORE: Justice Ali Akbar Qureshi of the Lahore High Court (LHC) has directed one Maqsood Ali to pay Rs 2,000 per month as maintenance allowance to his 21-year-old daughter, Misbah Kausar.

The judge also held that Ali should bear all expenses of Misbah’s marriage.

The judge issued the directions on a petition by Ali, challenging a lower court order that he should pay maintenance allowance to his daughter.

The girl had filed a suit in April for recovery of the maintenance allowance from her father. Ali said that he had paid his former wife for the girl’s expenditures. He said that his daughter could not claim allowance as she was not inclined to live with him.

Justice Ali Akbar Qureshi doubled the allowance, and directed the father to pay it from now onward.
