Jaipur/IBNS: The Indian woman, who travelled all the way to a remote village in Pakistan to meet her friend whom she got in touch with on social media, has now converted to Islam, renamed herself as Fatima, and married the Facebook friend.

As per reports, the woman, named Anju, fell in love with 29-year-old Nasrulla, her Facebook friend whom she met on social media in 2019.

In India, Anju was married to Arvind in Rajasthan and they both have a 15-year-old daughter and a six-year-old son.

The 34-year-old, who was born in Uttar Pradesh, told her husband, as he claimed, that she was going to Jaipur.

In Pakistan, she was staying at Nasrullah's home in the Upper Dir district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

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.

They tied the knot in a local court of a district and sessions judge amid tight security.

Both appeared in the court in Upper Dir in the presence of family members of Nasrullah, police personnel, and lawyers, the police.

According to Geo News, the Indian woman has been shifted to her home from the court under police security.

As per the statement, they have signed the nikkah on their own will and Fatima told the court that she willingly came to Pakistan.

Earlier on Monday, Fatima and Nasrullah went on a sightseeing trip amid tight security. They visited the Lawari tunnel connecting Dir Upper District with Chitral District, police officials said.

Born in Kailor village in Uttar Pradesh and living in the Alwar district of Rajasthan, Anju shared a short video before her marriage in which she says she "feels safe" in Pakistan.

"I want to give this message to all that I have come here legally and with planning as it was not about two days that I came here all of a sudden, and I am safe here," she said in the video.

Meanwhile, her father Tuesday told the media that his daughter Anju was as good as dead for her family back home.

She travelled to Pakistan legally from India via the Wagah-Attari border.
