Indian woman in Pakistan seeks security on journey back home

Posted May 13, 2017

An Indian diplomat was found taking pictures of an Islamabad High Court judge inside the courtroom with his cell phone on Friday, catching the eye of court staff who took him in brief detention. "I was mentally, physically and sexually tortured", she remarked, adding that she has been staying at the Indian High Commission in Islamabad of her own accord. Later, the cellphone was returned to him and no charges were pressed against him. When court officials brought the matter to the notice of Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani, he ordered the confiscation of the mobile phone and said the action amounted to a breach of the court's decorum.

He said that he has Uzma's WhatsApp messages where she suggested him not to disclose about his first marriage while talking to her brother.

The Indian woman who has accused a Pakistani man of forcing her into marriage petitioned the Islamabad high court on Friday for duplicate travel documents and security so that she could return home. "The problem is not related to her travel documents, but stems from legal issues", advisor to Pakistan Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz had said.

He also requested the court to schedule the hearing for his petition on Monday. Uzma said she was forced into marrying Ali at gunpoint. Uzma said she had taken refuge at the Indian mission because she felt threatened and wanted to go back to New Delhi.

The Indian national has also asked the court to provide her security on the way from Islamabad to the Wagah border so that Tahir can be stopped from harassing her. He rejected allegations of physical and sexual violence and said Uzma should be medically examined to prove her allegations.
