Question By : Imaran Ahmad

My mother has gifted some jewelry to my wife at the time of my wedlock. Due to some differences between my mother and my wife, I had to stay with my wife separate from my mother. Now my mother has taken the gifted jewelry back while my wife is angry and says that she owns the jewelry. So, who is right?, DI014
