However, the forgery soon came to light when the woman’s lawyer, Abdullah Sulyman, revealed to the court that the woman was in the United Arab Emirates on the day of her alleged marriage, as shown in the forged deed. This evidence was based on the entry and exit stamps in their passport. These stamps showed that the woman had not gone to India in the past two years.
The ex-husband has also been proven to have enlisted the help of a court clerk in India to obtain the fake certificate.
was able to confirm that the marriage contract was forged and was issued in collaboration with a person in India who worked in court.
The verdict was appealed on the basis of the evidence. The appeals court rejected the father’s motion to withdraw custody of the child from the mother.
