Islamabad: The family members of Jagjit Kaur, who was allegedly abducted and forcefully converted to Islam, have rejected reports that their girl has returned home.
A family member (brother) was quoted as saying in a video that was shared by Akali Dal leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa: "Our sister has not returned home."
"These are wrong reports," he said.
He said no arrests have been made in the case so far.
"I appeal to Prime Minister Imran Khan, Army Chief and Punjab Governor to ensure justice to us," he said.
