Indian External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj, has thanked Pakistani diplomats and judiciary for the safe return of Indian national, Uzma, who had alleged she was duped into marrying a Pakistani man, according to The Hindu.
The case of Uzma, 20, took several turns when finally she was repatriated to New Delhi on Thursday following an Islamabad High Court (IHC) order.
Swaraj said India would like to thank Pakistan despite differences in the status of bilateral political relations.
“Today, I would like to express our appreciation of Pakistan irrespective of the current state of bilateral ties. If Uzma is here today, that is because the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan has helped us a lot. Pakistan’s Home Ministry has also helped us a lot,” said Swaraj.
The Indian minister insisted that the Indian High Commission received humanitarian support from Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
