She also made Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) as party in her petition for its input for enabling her to go back.

Uzma, a resident of New Delhi, filed a plea with an Islamabad court on May 8 against Ali, alleging that she was being intimidated by him.

He revealed that Uzma's brother later called her and spoke with the petitioner as well.

Uzma, 20, who has accused Tahir Ali of perpetrating atrocities, is staying at the Indian mission in Islamabad and has refused to leave the premises except to be repatriated to India.

Therefore, he prayed to the court to declare that both Ali and Uzma were legally husband and wife under the Shariah law and therefore have all the rights and duties toward each other and both can not be denied access to each other on any pretext and consequently respondents be directed to permit the petitioner to meet his wife.

The mobile phone of an Indian High Commission First Secretary was ordered seized today by a Pakistani court (Islamabad High Court) today in an instance of a major violation of his diplomatic rights, according to The Republic TV.

He also requested the court to schedule the hearing for his petition on Monday.

In her statement, recorded before a magistrate, Uzma has said that she came to Pakistan to see her relatives and not to marry Ali.


"I urge the court to ask the Foreign Office to issue duplicate travel documents so that I may travel back to India", she added.

However, Ali said she knew about his marriage and children.

Uzma had reached Pakistan on May 1 and they were married on May 3, he said. Waseem asked the petitioner to approach the Indian High Commission in Islamabad to obtain a visa as Uzma's family wanted to host a reception in New Dehli.

"She knew everything and was ready to live and die with me".

Ali and Uzma reportedly met in Malaysia, where Tahir worked as a taxi-driver.

The petition has also sought exemption from police reporting with an inscription that Dr. Uzam's daughter, Falak, is also not feeling well in India and her return has become mandatory.

"She will be sent back to India as soon as the legal problems are resolved".
