    Seema Haider, a Pakistani woman, captured public attention when she clandestinely entered India along with her four children to reunite with her romantic partner, Sachin Meena, a 22-year-old Indian citizen. Investigative agencies have compiled an initial report regarding her case. Seema embarked on her journey to India via Nepal in May, and subsequently, both she and Sachin were arrested but later released on bail.

    According to the report, Seema’s trip to Nepal was solely motivated by her desire to be with Sachin, the Indian citizen. In 2014, Seema, who is currently 27 years old and the daughter of Ghulam Raza, received permission from the Jacobabad court in Pakistan to marry her husband, Ghulam Haider Jakharani. The report discloses that Seema had claimed to be 19 years old in her court statement. Additionally, she gave birth to four children between January 1, 2018, and January 2, 2021.

    Seema’s father works as a rickshaw driver, her brother is employed by the government, and she has two sisters. The report also makes mention of Seema’s travel history. Her first flight was FZ336, and she returned to Karachi from Sharjah via a Dubai flight on May 10, 2023. On May 18, Seema and her children traveled on flight G9542. Furthermore, she took a flight numbered G9543 from Karachi on March 10, 2023. However, there are no records of her previous air travels, as stated in the report.

    The report also highlights an error in Seema’s age recorded on her ID card by the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA). It is mentioned that her age was mistakenly entered during the card’s registration process.

    Seema Haider and Sachin Meena developed a romantic relationship while playing the popular online game PUBG during the COVID-19 pandemic. They assert that they do not fear any religious backlash and are fully committed to each other, believing that only death can separate them. Seema has stated that she has married Sachin and adopted his name.

    Indian law enforcement authorities maintain that Seema’s long-term stay in India will be unfeasible. The couple’s story gained widespread attention worldwide and went viral, attracting significant media coverage.
