Sushma Swaraj seeks report on Pakistani husband threatening Indian wife
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has sought report from the Indian High Commission over Pakistani husband threatening Indian wife and beating her up. Swaraj said the Indian High Commission had met the victim and was ensuring her safe return to India. Sushma Swaraj tweeted that she received a YouTube message from Mohammad Akbar that his daughter Mohammadia Begum, an Indian national, was married to a person in Pakistan "and was being ill-treated by her in-laws". Our mission sent a Note Verbale requesting the safety, security and well-being of Mohammadia Begum," she said. Our High Commission officials met Mohammadia Begum and she expressed her desire to return to India." As the Hyderabad woman's passport had expired last year, Sushma asked the Indian High Commission to renew her Indian passport and facilitate her return to India.
