She was accompanied by Indian Mission officials. "We did not expect that she would back this soon," Uzma's brother Wasim Ahmad, happy at the quick turn of events, told reporters in New Delhi.
Expressing the family's gratitude to the Indian government, Mr Ahmad said, "We did not have to do any running around. We got a call from (External Affairs Minister) Sushma Swaraj that Uzma had contacted the Indian Mission in Islamabad and her return to the country was being facilitated."
Uzma, who is in her early 20s, had travelled to Pakistan earlier this month on vacation, her family said. Tahir Ali, whom she reportedly met in Malaysia and fell in love with, forced her into marrying him in Pakistan on May 3.
She had appealed to a court in Pakistan on May 12, alleging that Tahir Ali had married her at gunpoint. In the days after their marriage, he had harassed and intimidated her and taken away her travel papers to force her to stay, she told the court.
Requesting the court to allow her to return to India urgently, Uzma said that she had been "terribly beaten... tortured physically and mentally and forced to sign the nikahnama" by Ali.
Her husband Ali rejected the allegations and said, "she is still my wife. Neither she has asked for divorce nor I have divorced her."
During the hearing, the court had asked Uzma if she wanted to meet her husband in the chamber but she refused the offer, saying she did not want to talk to him.
Acknowledging the government's efforts, Uzma's brother Wasim Ahmed said, "Want to thank government, they thoroughly helped us. Sushma Swaraj ji always kept us updated, made me speak to her (Uzma) once."
According to the law in Pakistan, her lawyer can continue to represent her and she can come back to pursue the case.
