  Side Appellant : Mst. ASMA NAZ

-Parentage—Legitimacy and acknowledgment—Legitimate or illegitimate status of a person is established in view of the proof of birth but in a case where such proof is not coming forward then on the rule of acknowledgment by an acknowledger, in respect of status of a person, a conclusive presumption .can be drawn that he/she is his/her legitimate child and once such status is confirmed, it cannot be destroyed by any subsequent act of the acknowledger or of anyone claiming through him—Document, produced in the present case, led to the conclusion that the acknowledger had accepted the lady to be one of her legal heirs in his legacy, benefit of which would be drawn by the ladies being his daughter, wife and his mother respectively after his death—Status of the lady as daughter of the acknowledger thus could not be denied in circumstances.
