December 6, 2023: A Pakistani Woman named Javeria Khanum legally crossed over the Attari-Wagah border in Amritsar, India on Tuesday to marry her beau Sameer Khan who is from Kolkata.



As per sources, Khanum and Sameer were introduced to each other five years ago when he returned to Kolkata from Germany and saw Ms Khanum's picture on his mother's phone. It was love at first sight for him. He later told his mother that he wanted to marry her. Sameer's mother sent the proposal to Javeria's mother in Pakistan's Dera Ismail, and both families agreed, but the road ahead for this love story was not easy.
