While talking to media, the brother-in-law, Ansar Chaudhry said his father was unwell and his family knew it very late that his father had married another woman in Karachi.
He said they would complete legal procedures to take Abdullah back with them.
An investigation officer said criminal record of the prime suspect of the case, Rizwan, was available with police.
Edhi Center spokesman said Abdullah’s father could come to take his child from Edhi Center.
It should be noted that Rizwan brought Abdullah to the Edhi Centre and falsely claimed that he found the child at Do Darya area. The social welfare foundation decided to keep the four-year old at their orphanage and started searching for his parents.
Rizwan was the same person who had hired a flat for Abdullah and his mother named Haleema at Delhi Colony on rent. He had mentioned his overseas identification card number in the documents.
Police said that Rizwan was the prime suspect in the case and the authorities were searching high and wide for his arrest. They said that the case cannot be immediately solved unless the suspect was arrested.
The cause of Haleema’s death could not be ascertained in the post-mortem as the body was in a bad condition. The corpse of the deceased was sent to a laboratory for chemical examination to figure out how she was murdered.
Meanwhile, the details of Abdullah’s father emerged as he was identified as 69-year old Mohammad Iqbal.
He is a resident of Khanewal and was a contractor by profession. Iqbal got married twice by tying the knot with Haleema.
Sources said that Iqbal is ill and Abdullah’s uncle has agreed to take the child with him.
A special team has been formed for Rizwan’s arrest, according to DIG South.
Rizwan’s spouse Sonya, who is under police custody, said that her husband knew Haleema and both of them were living in the same compound at Delhi Colony.
Chairman of Bahria Town Malik Riaz has offered to adopt Abdullah, who was brought to Edhi Centre as a missing child a few days ago.
Bahria Town’s chief wished to adopt the four-year old after the child’s story was covered by television channels.
