Wife uses hubby’s name for illegitimate child; Dh2m ‘love’ suit

A married Indian woman and her Indian businessman lover have been sentenced to six months in jail, followed by deportation, by the Dubai Court of First Instance.

The couple had a child, born out of wedlock.The woman, however, used her husband?s name on the birth certificate of the illegitimate child. The court verdict is based on a defamation case filed by the woman?s husband, an Indian welder from Thiruvalla, Kerala, who was working in Brunei when the woman conceived and delivered the baby.

The lady has also been sentenced for an additional year in jail for misleading the Dubai Healthcare Authority DHA about the father of the baby. The baby is two years old now and may also have to go to jail with the mother.
