Amritsar, 3 June (PTI) A young Bangladeshi, who wants to marry a Pakistani woman who befriends him on social media and falls in love, enters India illegally and rides a road to Punjab to cross the border, but his plans go awry when he is held in Attari .

Nayanmiah Abdullah (20) decided to make the arduous journey after the woman declared her inability to visit Bangladesh and asked him to come to Pakistan to marry her, he told police.

Abdullah, a resident of the village of Bepari Para in the Shariatpur district of Bangladesh, first made it to Kolkata and then arrived in Amritsar two weeks ago, police said Wednesday.

Abdullah lived in various locations in Amritsar before moving to Attari. He was detained on Sunday night near the exit of the integrated checkpoint in Attari by the Border Security Force, police said.

He did not carry the passport or permission needed to cross into Pakistan and also travel documents, according to police.

When questioned, Abdullah told investigators that he wanted to go to Pakistan to meet a woman who lived in Karachi that he loved.

The teenager, who is pursuing post-graduation in Bangladesh, made contact with the woman on social media six months ago. Then, he fell in love with her and decided to marry her. The two remained in touch via video calls, police said. PTI JMS CHS VSD
