A 20-year-old Indian girl alleged that she was forced to marry a Pakistani citizen on gunpoint. The lady, identified as Uzma, a doctor by profession, has filed a plea with an Islamabad court against her husband Tahir Ali alleging that she was being harassed and intimidated by him.
She also recorded her statement before a magistrate. According to Geo News, the lady told court that she did not want to leave the Indian High Commission in Islamabad and that she wanted to go back to her home country. “My immigration documents were snatched,” she said, adding: “I was forced to marry Ali on gunpoint”.
Zakaria said that according to the Indian High Commission, she claimed to have married Ali and alleged that she later came to know that he was already married and has four children.
The High Commission is providing necessary consular assistance to her and is in touch with the Pakistan Foreign Office on the matter and the girl’s family in India, said the sources.
Uzma and Ali reportedly met in Malaysia and fell in love after which she travelled to Pakistan on May 1 via the Wagah border. Their ‘nikah’ was solemnised on May 3. But the situation changed when they visited the Indian High Commission on Friday.
