Uzma, who ho has sought refuge at the Indian mission here, petitioned the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on May 12 to provide security for her journey back to Delhi and to issue duplicate travel documents which were allegedly stolen by her Tahir.
Uzma's lawyer, Malik Shah Nawaz Noon and First Secretary to the Indian High Commission Piyush Singh filed the petition on her behalf in the IHC stating that her husband had deceived her as he was already married, and that he stole her passport and other travel documents.
She also asked the court to exempt her from police reporting.
She has alleged that she was sexually abused after her forced marriage to the Pakistani man at gunpoint.
In her statement, recorded before a magistrate, Uzma has said that she came to Pakistan to see her relatives and not to marry Tahir. She has said she did not know Ali was already married and had four children.
However, Tahir said she knew about his marriage and children. He said he had told her about his family and that he lived in mountains away from the main cities.
Uzma had reached Pakistan on May 1 and travelled to Buner district in the northwestern province of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa to marry Ali on May 3. The couple reportedly met in Malaysia, where Tahir worked as a taxi-driver.
The case has attracted attention on both sides of the border.
