More adventurous love stories across India-Pakistan border are emerging. After Pakistan national Seema Haider's illegal entry into India to be with her PUBG game partner Sachin Meena, comes another cross-border love story. This time a married woman from Rajasthan travelled to Pakistan to meet her Facebook lover.
Media reports said the woman, named Anju, fell in love with 29-year-old Nasrulla, her Facebook friend.
The 34-year-old, who was born in Uttar Pradesh, told her husband, as he claimed, that she was going to Jaipur.
From Rajasthan's Alwar, she travelled to Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on the invitation from Nasrulla.
Though Anju was initially under the custody of Pakistan Police, she was later released after the verification of her travel documents by the district police.
Back in India, a team of police reached Anju's house in Rajasthan's Bhiwadi to enquire.
Anju and her husband have two children, a 15-year-old girl and a six-year-old son.
Pak national Seema Haider appeals to Prez Murmu
Pakistani citizen Seema Haider, who has been in the news for her dramatic love story with her Indian partner Sachin Meena and for entering India without a visa, has meanwhile filed a mercy petition with President Droupadi Murmu.
Seema has sought permission for herself and her four children to reside at her "matrimonial home" in Greater Noida with Sachin Meena, who stays in the Rabupura area of the city, a report in the media said.
In her plea, she has also requested an oral hearing from the president regarding her case. The petition, filed by Supreme Court advocate A P Singh on her behalf, was received at the President's secretariat on Friday, said the report.
As per media reports, Seema and Sachin claimed to have made each other’s acquaintance while playing PUBG in 2019-20, a popular online game. Subsequently, they started to talk over WhatsApp and Instagram and fell in love. Despite being married, Seema left her home with her four children and reached Nepal where she met Sachin in person. After living in Kathmandu for some days, she came to India on May 13, illegally, without a visa.
According to her petition, 30-year-old Seema Haider says that she is in love with Sachin Meena (22), a resident of Greater Noida, and states that she arrived in India with her four children to be with him. She also claims to have converted to Hinduism and got married to Meena through Hindu rituals at the Pashupatinath temple in Kathmandu, Nepal.
On July 4, Seema Haider was arrested by the local police for illegally entering India, and Sachin Meena was held for sheltering illegal immigrants. However, they were both granted bail by a local court on July 7 and have been living together, along with her four children, in a house in Rabupura.
