Pakistani Woman Reaches India to Marry Her Lover from Kolkata

Kolkata: Javeria Khanum, a woman hailing from Pakistan’s Dera Ismail entered India crossing the Attari-Wagah border in Punjab to transform her cross-border love story into marriage.

She is all set to marry her fiancé of five years, Sameer Khan, a resident of Kolkata, in January.

Sameer’s friends from Germany, Africa, Spain, the United States and other countries will attend his cross-border wedding.

Sameer and Javeria came across each other in 2018 when he returned to Kolkata from Germany and saw Javeria’s picture on his mother’s phone. It was love at first sight, says Sameer.

Sameer’s mother sent the marriage proposal to Javeria’s mother in Dera Ismail, and both families agreed for it.

But the marriage could not happen as Javeria could not get a Visa to travel to India. Her Visa application was twice rejected by the Indian High Commission.

In the last five years, he has met Javeria only three times. Twice in Thailand and once in Dubai.

COVID pandemic also delayed their meeting and marriage. At last, Javeria could get a Visa to cross the international border between India and Pakistan at the Attari-Wagah crossing.

Sameer was waiting for his to-be-wife Javeria with a bouquet and ‘dhol’ at the border.
