CHANDIGARH:After three Pakistani militants infiltrated into Dinanagar through Ravi river and killed seven people before they were gunned down by the Punjab Police, in a major security lapse at Attari railway station, a Pakistani woman entered into the country without her passport and visa and then boarded the Samjhauta Express train. But, she was caught by the ticket examiner in the train.

According to sources, the Railway Protection Force (RPF) made her get down at Jalandhar railway station, as she had no valid documents, which the woman said were with her uncle who got off the train in the pretext of buying water and did not return. She was then sent back to Attari railway station, from where she boarded the train to Delhi. Sources said the woman identified herself as Faujia alias Chnada Khan, 26, from Karachi and wife of one Salman Khan. She was carrying a small bag and during the search, some medicines and Pakistani currency worth Rs 771 were recovered from her.

She reportedly claimed that she was travelling with her maternal uncle Rashid Khan and she wanted to visit some Dargah to seek blessings of the almighty for having kids.

Though she first claimed that her documents were with Rashid, she later said she had passport and visa with her, but could not recall where she kept them.

Police sources said the woman often contradicted her own claims -- first she said she had come to pay obeisance at Ajmer Sharif and then said a Dargah at Delhi.

She also said after paying obeisance at Dargah she was to go to Mumbai to see Bollywood superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, as she was a big fan of theirs.
