The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), with the help of local police officials, has recovered a British citizen and her two children from Shorkot cantt area, The Express Tribune learnt on Thursday.
The mother, along with her children, was being forcibly detained by her husband Muhammad Iqbal Khan, also a British national. About two months ago, Zahida Iqbal came to Pakistan along with family to transfer property. Muhammad Iqbal wanted the property to be transferred to their child while Zahida wanted it to be filed in her name. The dispute worsened and Muhammed Iqbal Khan illegally detained his wife against her will.
Zahida contacted the British government later on as well as the high commission in Islamabad, after which they requested the ministry of interior to recover her.
