-art-199~recovery of minor children-learned courts below not only have deprived real mother from custody of minor children on sole ground of poverty but on the other hand have misread evidence wherein it is categorically stated that children in possession of mother are happy and receiving proper education-though minors are studying in government school in 7th class and 4th class respectively but it is also in evidence that father of children is a crane operator in tarbela dam project, who in his meagre pay without any other source of income could not be expected to impart education to children in some high standard educational institutions-hence education of minor children in custody of mother is property going on according to her resources and maintenance allowance which she received from husband for them-moreover, father of minor children has contracted two other marriages and in presence of two step mothers in same house, welfare of minors cannot be stated to be safe than in custody of her real mother-law gives custody of a child which is too young to be independent of own's help in feeding, clothing and like, for boy limit is fixed at 7 years, but right of custody of father is required to be instituted solely for benefit of minor and in absence to that right cannot be conferred on father at all costs-mother is best guardian for her minor children unless it is proved that she has married a man who is not closely related to minor, or she lives a life of open immorality or her occupation by such as to make it difficult for her to look after child properly-all above factors goes in favour of mother-neither she has contracted marriage nor her character and occupation is such that i custody of minors could be refused to her-custody of minors given to mother.

-s. & sched.-petitioner was found entitled to dissolution of marriage on the basis of khula, in consideration whereof she was directed by family court to return dower amount already received and forgoing of remaining dower amount and maintenance allowance-legality-dower is a settlement in favour of wife made prior to completion of marriage a contract and is a pre-condition of a valid marriage-payment of dower is indispensible so much so that in its absence relationship between man and wife could not be legitimized and would be regarded as a sinful union-gift or benefit on other hand which is to be restored to husband by wife in lieu of obtaining khula is in essence a gratuitous offering which may be bestowed by husband on wife is merely voluntary in nature- dower whether paid or un-paid can never be in the nature of a benefit or gift which is liable to be restored in consideration for granting khula divorce-impugned judgment passed by trial court was thus, not sustainable to the extent that it makes grant of khula subject to condition of repayment of paid amount of dower by wife to husband and to obligate her to forego unpaid dower amount-impugned judgment and decree was thus, liable to be modified to that extent.

"m" and her mother-in original fir no notice was attributed to accused appellant-as such it was not necessary for prosecution to prove existence of motive-even most heinous offences are some times committed without existence of any motive-however, during trial, it did come to light that "z" accused/ appellant did have motive to committee offences in question-death sentence of appellant confirmed-appeal dismissed.

-petitioner had not challenged decree for dissolution of marriage in favour of his former wife-said decree has, therefore, become final-hence, at this stage, petitioner cannot find fault therein to say that amount of dower should have directed to be not due to his former wife-since decree for dissolution of marriage has already acquired finality, any modification by reversing to another decree cannot be made in former decree-even otherwise, it is well settled that dower is a debt and unless wife waives same, it is payable to wife-petitioner has not contested amount of dower and that same has not yet been paid to his former wife-he would, therefore, be liable to make payment of amount of dower, notwithstanding dissolution of marriage on basis ofkhula.

--contention that respondent (deputy commissioner) may kindly be directed to issue a local certificate in favour of petition being validly married wife of a person, who is a local of a district of balochistan accordingly, in the interest of justice-it also appears that petitioner or her husband has not placed before committee any material to establish that he/she is a genuine resident of area except local certificate-it may be because of impression of petitioner that she is automatically entitled for grant of same on basis of her husband's local certificate but it may clarify that even in such cases, laid down produce has to be followed-although high court we appreciate anxiety of learned deputy commissioner that local certificate should be issued only to bonafide residents of areas, every body should get a fair chance to prove his entitlement-also that at time of submission of application, it was obligatory on part of petitioner or her husband to place necessary material before learned deputy commissioner/committee to prove that he is a genuine resident of area but simultaneously it cannot be ignored that enquiiy was conducted behind back of petitioner and without providing an opportunity of hearing to her/him-in circumstances high court feel appropriate to set aside impugned order passed by learned deputy commissioner and petitioner is at liberty to appear before learned deputy commissioner and or committee constituted for purpose and establish that her husband is a genuine and bonafide resident of area-issuance of local certificate in favour of her husband is definitely an evidence but by itself is not conclusive in view of position taken by deputy commissioner-however, all these questions are open for consideration by issuing authority, with an opportunity to petitioner or her husband-in case, she succeeds to satisfaction of deputy commissioner/committee, her claim for grant of such certificate by virtue of her marriage, should also be considered in view of settled law.
