The incidents of cross-border lovers are on the rise these days, thanks to social media platforms. Now an Indian woman has traveled to Pakistan to get married and stay with a friend from Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa after their Facebook friendship turned into a love affair.
Thirty-five-year-old Anju, a native of the Indian city of Delhi, traveled to Pakistan to meet her 25-year-old lover Nasrullah, who lives in the scenic Upper Dir region.
Their virtual connection blossomed into love, prompting her to make the daring journey to Pakistan, a usually unlikely love match. However, neither has confirmed whether they have tied the knot yet.

Upper Dir district police officer Mushtaq Khan also confirmed the arrival of the woman.
“The girl is under investigation and is currently under police custody. Security services will investigate as soon as the situation becomes clear,” he told the media.
A similar case also occurred a few days earlier when a Pakistani woman went to India to meet his lover. Seema Ghulam Haider, 27, and Sachin Meena, 22, met through the popular online game PUBG. Seema had fled to India to be with her partner along with her four children.
Seema entered India illegally in May along with her four young children. According to the police, they had been staying with Sachin in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh, for more than a month.
The police immediately arrested the couple, a court sent them back to prison for 14 days before they were released. The police are conducting an extensive investigation into the case.
