Police in Pakistan have assured a judge that they will not intervene in an international custody dispute over a 12-year-old Scottish girl.
Misbah, right, with her older sister Tahmina in Pakistan
The court has now disposed of a petition filed by relatives of Molly Campbell, who prefers to be called Misbah Rana.
Family members were afraid she would be deported against her will after she flew to Pakistan two weeks ago.
Misbah said she wanted to stay although her mother had legal custody of her.
Her sister had filed the petition because, she said, the family was under constant police surveillance.
She wanted the High Court in Lahore to guarantee that Misbah would not be detained and deported.
The city's police chief submitted a statement saying there had been no attempt to pick up the girl and no instructions to do so.
A lawyer for the province then assured the judge that police would not interfere in the case.
Misbah's Scottish mother, Louise Campbell, has legal custody of her daughter but the girl has said she would rather live in Pakistan with her father, Sajed Rana.
Ms Campbell and her daughter had moved to Tong, a village in Lewis, Western Isles, from Stranraer nine months ago.
