It is thus evident that although there has been a relationship between Petitioner No.2 and Mst. Wakeela in the past, as petitioner No.2 and Mst. Wakeela in the past, as petitioner No.2 was the wife of her father, however, after the death of her fatehr, petitioner No.2 is completely stranger to her having no relationship of consanginty, affinity and fosterage with her. Hand petitioner No.2 been otherwise related to Mst. Wakeela with the aforementioned ties, her marriage with petitioner No. 1 in subsistence of his marriage with Mst. Wakeela would have been unlawful. However, in the absence of any other relation. Nikah of petitioner No.2 with petitioner No.1 cannot be held unlawful, as stated above, merely on the ground that petitioner No.2 has remained wife of the father of Mst. Wakeela.[p. 34]C
