I was forced to marry Pakistani Tahir Ali, Uzma tells IHC


ISLAMABAD: Indian national Uzma once again informed the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Friday that she was ‘forced to marry’ her Pakistani husband, Tahir Ali.
In her six-page statement submitted by her counsel, Shahnawaz Noon , she claimed that she was threatened to kill her if she refused to sign Nikah document.
Earlier this month, Uzma, 22, was reported to have gone ‘missing’ at the Indian High Commission, a few days after her marriage to Ali, a resident of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
It emerged later that she had sought refuge in the Indian High Commission requested to be repatriated back to India.
First Secretary at the Indian High Commission Piyush Singh was present at the IHC.
She had earlier claimed she was forced to marry Tahir Ali on gunpoint; however, a copy of the written reply obtained by Dawn.com revealed more details.
Uzma’s lawyer aims to get permission from Islamabad to allow her to go back to India. Uzma’s visa is said to expire on May 30.
