PESHAWAR: A married Indian woman recently traveled to Pakistan and released a video expressing her feelings of safety in the country amidst reports of her marriage to a man from Pakistan. According to media reports, Anju, a 34-year-old woman and mother of two, married Nasrullah, whom she had met online.

The couple reportedly tied the knot in a local court in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Upper Dir, with an official confirming the marriage. Photographs of the couple on a sightseeing trip surfaced online. Anju stated in the video that she had planned her entry into Pakistan. However, the authenticity of the photos could not be independently verified.

“I want to give this message to all that I have come here [Pakistan] legally and with planning as it was not about two days that I came here all of a sudden, and I am safe here,” she said.

Anju traveled to Pakistan on a one-month visa, and there were initial speculations about their marriage. However, Nasrullah has denied such plans, stating that Anju will return to India after her visa expires. Anju is married and has two children, and her husband was unaware of her travel plans.

The incident reflects a similar story of Seema Haider from Pakistan and Sachin Meena from India, who also crossed borders for love, facing legal consequences before being granted bail.
