Pakistani woman living in Bangalore hiding her identity arrested, came to India after marrying an Indian youth

Police have arrested a 19-year-old Pakistani woman for hiding her identity and living illegally in the city. According to the police, a woman named Iqra Jeevani entered India last year through the Indo-Nepal border. The woman is married to Mulayam Singh Yadav, a 25-year-old security guard from Uttar Pradesh, whom she met through a gaming app, he said. Police sources told that both met on the app and fell in love and later decided to get married. After this she came to Nepal a few months back where she got married. The couple then crossed the Indo-Nepal border to India and reached Bihar. Yadav later brought Iqra Jeevani to Bengaluru, where he works as a security guard, and the couple rented a house in Junnasandra.

After changing the name of Iqra Jiwani to Rava Yadav, Yadav got her Aadhaar card made claiming her as his wife and later the woman also applied for an Indian passport. Her identity came to light when the Intelligence Bureau traced Iqra’s biography as she was trying to contact her family members in Pakistan, which alerted the country’s intelligence. Based on the information, the police gathered information about the couple and raided their house. Police said they were interrogated and arrested.

Iqra Jiwani was later handed over to FRRO (Foreigners Regional Registration Office) officials who later sent her to a government shelter home for women and are further probing the matter. Sources said that Iqra’s husband Mulayam has also been arrested. An FIR has been registered in connection with the matter under relevant sections of the Foreigners Act and various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Police said a case has also been registered under relevant sections of the Foreigners Act against the landlord, Govinda Reddy, who had failed to inform the police about the foreigner living illegally in his building.
