The petition by Uzma stated that her Pakistani husband, Tahir Ali, had deceived her as he was already married, and that he stole her passport and other travel documents.

It is pertinent to mention here that Dr. Uzma earlier this week alleged harassment and forced marriage against her Pakistani spouse.

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

The incident took place when the Indian diplomat, who is identified as Piyush Singh, went to the court to hear the proceedings of a case of an Indian girl who alleged she was forced to marry a Pakistani man and had to go through mental and physical torture.

Pakistani media reported that Singh was seen taking pictures, while he told court that he was texting and not using the camera of the phone.

The petition, filed on Uzma's behalf by her counsel Malik Shah Nawaz Noon and Piyush Singh, first secretary (consular and visa) in the Indian high commission, also sought security for her return to India via the Wagah land border crossing.

He said he had urged the court to pass an order barring Uzma from leaving Pakistan until the legal issues were resolved. 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.

The two contracted a court marriage on May 3rd in Buner District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Gopal Baglay in New Delhi said Uzma, who is inside the High Commission, was fine and happy.

However, Ali said she knew about his marriage and children. He said he had told her about his family and that he lived in the mountains, away from the main cities."She knew everything and was ready to live and die with me".

Asked if he knew Uzma's parents, Ali said he had never spoken to them.

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.

Uzma in her request claimed, "My five-year-old daughter Falak is ill, and I have to meet her".

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