New Delhi: The first husband of Seema Haider, a Pakistani woman who illegally crossed into India with her four children in 2023, has enlisted the help of an Indian lawyer to reclaim custody of his underage kids. Renowned Pakistani human rights activist Ansar Burney revealed this development in Karachi on Friday, shedding light on the ongoing dispute. Seema Haider's journey made headlines last year when Indian authorities discovered her residing with her Indian lover, Sachin Meena, in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh. The couple's relationship, which reportedly blossomed through a mobile game, has since led to Seema's pregnancy with Sachin Meena.
