LAHORE: A family court on Wednesday issued a notice to former chief of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lt-Gen (Retd) Zaheerul Islam on a family suit filed by Palwasha Zai Khan, who claims to be his wife. 

The News has learnt that family court judge Abdul Muneem has issued a notice to the former ISI chief for Jan 20.

It was learnt that Palwasha has moved the family court for alimony for his four and half-year-old son Shamsherul Islam. The court in its notice has directed Zaheerul 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 Zai claims that she had married Zaheerul Islam on May 5, 2015, in Islamabad and she had a four and half-year old son Shamsherul Islam with him. Sources claim that Palwasha has also initiated legal proceedings for a divorce from the former ISI chief.
