Hyderabadi Woman Stuck in Pakistan

HYDERABAD: Mohammadi Begum’s case is finally under some light after 10 days of desperate efforts.

Begum is stuck in Pakistan and has been pleading her father since three months to bring her back to her home land. City police on Saturday contacted her father in Bandlaguda and took all the details.

The Special Branch officials contacted Mohammed Akbar, father of Begum, and took from him the details about Begum’s marriage to a Pakistan national Mohammed Younis, who concealed his actual nationality and cheated her by claiming to be from Oman.

“My statement was taken by the police and I was asked to come to meet some senior officer in SB, Purani Haveli. This is the first time government official contacted us but till now there is no response from the ministry of external affairs,” Akbar told TOI. Akbar nearly 15 days ago sent an email to external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj seeking her help to bring back Mohammadi Begum.

“I am facing torture at the hands of Younis. I want to return to Hyderabad but my passport has expired,” said Begum. She has been pleading her father over phone for the last three months to help her return to India.
