Hubballi man reunites with his Pakistani wife

A man from Hubballi has been reunited with his Pakistani wife after nine months of struggle.  Daniel Henry Devanur had married his distant relative Silvia Noorin in Lahore on June 25, 2016. But, Silvia was unable to travel to India owing to problems in securing visa.

Devanur had tweeted his problem to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who in turn contacted the Indian consulate in Pakistan and Silvia eventually got the visa.

Silvia reached New Delhi on April 19 from where she travelled with her husband to Hubballi. The coupled reached Hubballi by train on Thursday.
