javeria-khanum-and-sameer

KOLKATA: A Pakistani woman has arrived in Kolkata to meet her fiancé in person. Javeria Khanum, a native of Karachi, reached Kolkata to meet her boyfriend Sameer Khan. 21-year-old Javeria travelled to India after the central government granted her a 45-day visa. Javeria, who reached India through the Wagah border, was received by Sameer and his father.

For the last five years, Javeria and Sameer had been looking forward to their meeting. The Covid pandemic and the difficulty in acquiring visas caused their wait to be prolonged. Earlier, the central government had rejected Javeria's visa application twice. Javeria is happy that she is finally able to meet her beloved in India.

"If your intention is good, then the border is not at all a problem," this is how Javeria responded after reaching India.

Sameer and Javeria later met the media together. They will get married in January next year. Javeria thanked the central government for granting her a visa to come to India to meet Sameer. Javeria is planning to extend the visa period after the marriage. Javeria said that upon reaching India, she received a great welcome and love from Sameer's relatives.

Sameer first saw Javeria on his mother's phone in 2018 after returning home from Germany. He immediately informed the family of his desire to marry her. Sameer said his friends in Germany, Africa and America will attend the wedding.
