LAHORE: The Lahore High Court on Wednesday disposed of a habeas corpus petition seeking recovery of a minor child from the illegal custody of a man who works as a servant of Khawar Manika.

Earlier, the Pakpattan city police produced the minor before the court after recovering him from the custody of the respondent father.

Justice Amjad Rafiq handed over the minor to his mother and disposed of the petition.
