Amid border tensions, India Pakistan cross border Sikh marriage

ISLAMABAD - A 33-year-old man from Haryana is all set to tie the knot with a woman from Sialkot in Pakistan .

The marriage between Parvinder Singh, a telecom contractor and resident of Tepla village in Ambala, will be solemnised by the end of this week at a gurdwara in Patiala as per Sikh tradition with Kiran Sarjeet (27) who along with her family reached India via Samjhauta Express on Thursday.

The two got engaged in 2016 when Sarjeet visited her maternal uncle’s house at Samana in Patiala.

Parvinder, who is the youngest of three siblings, said he had known Sarjeet for long since she is a distant relative of his aunt (wife of father’s younger brother).

Her family had stayed back in Sialkot during Partition in 1947, he says.
