Jaisalmer, Jul 22 (UNI) He shunned militancy five years ago and wanted to settle down back home in Pakistan with his dream girl--a Kashmiri belle--but legal hurdle has blocked the way for a happy end of their trans border love story.
Murad Ali, a trained terrorist outfit Al Badr activist from Peshawar, was pushed into India in 1999 through LoC alongwith 15 other militants for carrying out terrorist and disruptive activities in Jammu and Kashmir.
However, feed up with fugitive life, Murad shun militancy and surrendered before the Army in 2003 and opted to serve as Army's informer.
The change proved lucky for him as he soon got a Kashmiri bride, but happier days did not last for long and his wife committed suicide for reasons unknown.
Soon he rediscovered his love in a Kashmiri belle, Nasima of Arapur village under Bandipur tehsil. The duo had planned to settle down in Pakistan and accordingly, they had come to Rajasthan in 2005 to make a bid to cross over from Indo-Pak border along Barmer district.
Their bid was foiled by the security forces. Resultantly, Murad was slapped with a three-year jail term and Nasima was handed over to her family.
Murad has now been released from jail on Saturday after completing his jail term and the authorities are contemplating his deportation.
Meanwhile, Murad received a letter from Nasima about a month ago in which she had expressed her desire for re-union with him.
However, their ambition is unlikely to be realised as authorities have held that under prevailing laws, Nasima could not be allowed to go with Murad.
