Although of Indian origin, Kaur was a resident of Munich in Germany where she met a man named Ali Arsalan, who was from Sialkot.

Arsalan invited her over to Pakistan to solidify their union, and their nikkah has been performed in Sialkot’s Jamia Hanfia.

She had arrived in Pakistan on a yatra visa on January 16. Her visa is valid till April 15.
