The petitioner alleged that Indian High Commission officials took his wife to a court, where she filed a complaint and recorded her statement under duress.
The husband of an Indian woman, who was allegedly sexually abused after her forced marriage to a Pakistani man at gunpoint, has pleaded the High Court in Islamabad for a meeting with his wife to clear all "misunderstandings".
Piyush Singh was caught taking pictures inside the court, including a picture of Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani.
The IHC judge, terming it a serious violation of the court decorum, ordered the Indian diplomat to submit a written apology after Singh verbally apologised for the incident. He was let off only after he offered verbal and written apologies. The court accepted his apology and warned him not to repeat the act, the report said.
"I apologise for using mobile in court by mistake".
When courtroom officials brought the incident to the notice of the judge, he ordered confiscation of Singh's cellphone, The Express Tribune reported.
Therefore, he prayed to the court to declare that both Ali and Uzma were legally husband and wife under the Shariah law and therefore have all the rights and duties toward each other and both can not be denied access to each other on any pretext and consequently respondents be directed to permit the petitioner to meet his wife.

He was accused of stealing a propaganda poster, and North Korean officials released a video that purported to show him taking it. Earlier this month, American colleague Kim Sang-duk, who is also known as Tony Kim, was arrested on similar charges.
On May 3, Uzma informed the magistrate that she was deceived, tortured and forced to sign marriage documents at gunpoint. The Indian national has stated in her petition that Tahir Ali was a married man already who tied a nuptial knot with her on gun point.
Uzma, 20, who has accused Tahir Ali of perpetrating atrocities, is staying at the Indian mission in Islamabad and has refused to leave the premises except to be repatriated to India.
The petition on Friday sought security for her journey back to India via the Wagah border and requested that her husband be restrained from harassing her. "He even stole my passport and travelling documents".
It also sought an exemption to Uzma from reporting to police and requested her repatriation to her homeland.
The petition also urged the court for an immediate hearing in the matter.
The Pakistan Foreign Office (FO) had earlier said that Uzma, will be repatriated only after all legal requirements are completed. However, her husband has confiscated all necessary travel documents in this regards and foreign ministry should be directed to issue her a duplicate copy of immigration form, petition added.
