The 40-year-old Pakistani woman, Allabasai has been living in the remote village of Bikaner on the India-Pakistan border after she got married to Jaggu Khan in 1986. She was a resident of Bahawalpur city in Pakistan. Following the marriage, she shifted to 26 KJD village in the Khajuwala sub-division in Bikaner.
In spite of not posessing Indian citizenship, Allabasai filed an affidavit along with other required documents and applied for the voters ID, which she got last year.
An alert was sounded after the matter was intimated to state intelligence that led to the local police springing into action revealed Khajuwala sub-divisional officer Nisar Khan. It was later found that Allabasai had procured the ID after enrolling herself in the electoral list in 2008. A notice was served against her and her voter ID card was eventually cancelled.
Allabasai in her defence stated that she had requested central authorities to grant her citizenship as she has been living in the country since the last 25 years. Her voters ID card was cancelled since she did not possess any proof of Indian citizenship.
