Islamabad, Aug 31: The minor Sikh girl, who was abducted and forcefully converted to Islam, has been sent back to her parents in Pakistan'a Punjab, media reports said.

Police in Pakistan have arrested eight accused persons.


The family of abducted Jagjit Kaur has alleged that she was forced to marry a Muslim man after being converted to Islam. They had threatened to immolate themselves in front of Pakistan's Punjab Governor's house if the girl is not returned soon. 


India on Friday said the concerns have been shared with the government of the neighbouring Islamic country.


"A  daughter of a Granthi of Gurdwara Tambu Sahib [Sikh priest] in Nankana Sahib was missing for past 3 days. She has surfaced on Thursday after marrying a Muslim man and embracing Islam," videos going viral now showed.


The video of the wedding ceremony of the girl has become viral on the social media. In the video, the girl in a deadpan face is saying that she has embraced Islam and married the Muslim man by her own will even as her family alleged she was forced to do so.


Jagjit Kaur could be seen chanting Quranic verses as recited by a Muslim cleric. She married a man named Mohammad Ehsan, as per the video.


The man is a member of terrorist organization Jamaat ud Dawa, sources said.


The girl said she has been renamed Aisha after her conversion.


She could be heard saying in the video that she did not bring any jewellery or any crucial property paper from her home.


In the video, the girl could be seen sitting beside Ehsan.
