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

Uzma's lawyer, Barrister Malik Shah Nawaz Noon along with Singh filed the petition on her behalf in the IHC stating that her husband Tahir Ali had deceived her as he was already married, and that he stole her passport and other travel documents, reports the Dawn.

Uzma, who hails from New Delhi, and Tahir met in Malaysia and fell in love with each other after which she travelled to Pakistan on May 1 via the Wagah border. "He even stole my passport and travelling documents", she said. "I have requested the High Court to arrange a meeting with Uzma in a free environment", he told reporters. However, her husband has confiscated all necessary travel documents in this regards and foreign ministry should be directed to issue her a duplicate copy of immigration form, petition added.

On Wednesday, Pakistan prime minister's adviser on foreign affairs Sartaj Aziz said the Indian woman will be sent back as soon as the legal issues in the case are resolved.

Talking to journalists, the petitioner said that his first wife was aware of his second marriage and Uzma also knew about his first marriage.

Declaring her husband and the Foreign Office as parties to the case, Uzma declared the diplomatic enclave in the Indian High Commission as her residence.
