ISLAMABAD: Indian citizen Dr Uzma, in a statement before a magistrate, has accused her husband of harassment and claimed that she was forced to marry Tahir Ali, a Pakistani citizen, at gun point.
In her statement, recorded under Section 506 of Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) 506 for intimidation, she claimed that she was harassed and abused and her travel documents were snatched.
I won’t leave the Indian High Commission without security, she said.
Earlier, Tahir had filed a plea with the Secretariat Police Station for the recovery of his wife who had gone to the HC for their visas on May 05 but did not return.
According to the details, Dr Uzma came to Pakistan on May 1 via Wagah border and got married to Tahir Ali on May 3, in Buner. The couple had planned to go to New Delhi after marriage.
The Foreign Office said that the government is in contact with the Indian HC on the issue and they have conveyed that Uzma tied the knot with Tahir but later she came to know that he is already married and has four kids.
On the other hand, Tahir said that Uzma knew about his marriage but if she doesn’t want to live, she has the right.
