Indian Woman Uzma said that Tahir Ali had married her at gunpoint

Indian Woman Uzma had appealed to a court in Islamabad (Pakistan) that Tahir Ali had married her at gunpoint. In the days after their marriage, he had harassed and intimidated her and taken away her travel papers to force her to stay.

The court told her that she could return to India any time and would be given police protection on her way back. Uzma will come back via Wagah border, escorted by the officials of the Indian High Commission.

The woman, a resident of Delhi, said she had met Tahir Ali during a visit to Malaysia and the two got married when she visited Pakistan on May 1. Four days later, she approached the Indian High Commission, saying wished to return to India and requesting them for help.

Tahir Ali, who was waiting outside during her visit to the Indian High Commission, filed a case with the police, alleging that she had been illegally detained by the officials.



The External Affairs ministry, which immediately started negotiations with the Pakistani authorities, said that she had been "sedated, assaulted, tortured mentally and physically".

The Pakistani foreign office had said she would be allowed to return only after all "legal requirements" were completed.
