Indian woman forced to marry Pakistani man to be deported

Prime News, International (Islamabad), May 24:- Indian woman Uzma Jan, who was allegedly forced to marry a Pakistani man, Tahir Ali, has been allowed to return to India by the Islamabad High Court.

Magistrate Salman Amjad Siddique ordered Pakistan’s Interior Ministry to secure Uzma’s travel back to India.

According to sources, Uzma — whose visa will expire on May 30 — will be deported to India on Thursday.

Uzma, a doctor, had requested the court to allow her to return to India and said she was forced to marry Tahir at gunpoint.

She had taken refuge at the Indian High Commission in Islamabad earlier this month and asked to be repatriated to India after she came to know that Tahir was already married and had four children.

She said Tahir had deceived her and accused him of stealing her passport and other travel documents.

The High Court on Wednesday ordered that Uzma can go to her country and the case will be processed in her absence.
