An Indian Sikh woman was prevented from illegally staying in Pakistan after a pilgrimage to Kartarpur. The woman intended to stay here with her Pakistani boyfriend.
According to Geo English, security was tightened around the Sikh holy shrine since then. Visitors are now asked for bio-metric verification when exiting the holy place.
Last month, Pakistani authorities prevented an Indian girl, Manjeet Kaur from entering Pakistan illegally. The Sikh woman was in Pakistan for the pilgrimage to the Darbar Sahib Gurdwara in Kartarpur.
Based on a report in the Urdu paper Jang, the woman hailing from the Indian state of Haryana entered Pakistan as a Sikh pilgrim. Manjeet did this in order to meet her Pakistani boyfriend at the Darbar Sahib Gurdwara.
Manjeet Kaur met her boyfriend on the first floor of the holy site. The Pakistani man from Faisalabad had come to the gurdwara along with a couple of friends, including a woman.
Manjeet decided to stay in Pakistan after a talk with her boyfriend. The woman among the Faisalabad man’s friends gave Manjeet her visitor card. Manjeet then discarded her pilgrim card in a dustbin.
However, Pakistani authorities acted soon and therefore, there was no ‘happily ever after’ for this couple. Authorities apprehended and confronted the couple before Manjeet fled with her boyfriend.
