Pak woman Seema Haider, husband Sachin missing from their Greater Noida hometext_fields
Lucknow: The cross-border love story of Seema Haider and Sachin Meena has taken a new twist as the couple has been reported missing for the past 24 hours from their residence in Rabupura village, located in Greater Noida located approximately 50 kilometres from New Delhi.
Seema has been facing threats from both Pakistan and right-wing activists in India.
The Gau Raksha Hindu Dal has issued a 72-hour ultimatum for her to leave the country. The organization's national president, Ved Nagar, released a video claiming that Seema Haider could be a Pakistani spy and poses a threat to the nation.
Intelligence agencies have expressed concerns that Seema might be targeted by fundamentalist elements.
Unconfirmed reports said that the couple had been picked up by the ATS that was probing the antecedents of Seema and her intention behind coming to India.
The news of the couple gone 'missing' also comes in the wake of ATS holding a probe into the suspicious entry of Seema in India and the possible ISI honeytrap angle.
Seema Haider, a Pakistani woman with four children, entered India via the Nepal border. She claimed that she was in love with Sachin whom she met while playing PUBG with him.
The two reportedly got married in Nepal and she has been living with Sachin's family in Noida.
However, the couple stirred a hornet's nest with a section of the media going overboard and claiming that Seema was an ISI agent.
Her previous boyfriend from Pakistan and husband from Saudi Arabia also jumped into the controversy by giving lengthy interviews to TV channels.
Seema Haider had entered India without a valid VISA. She had earlier said that she did not apply for the visa citing the rules in India. Seema and Sachin both were earlier arrested by police in this case but were later released.
The probe agencies are looking into the matter and trying to ascertain facts related to her entry in India as well.
While Seema refuses to return to Pakistan, her family has now asked her also not to return.
