New Delhi, Sept 1 (IBNS): Amid reports that an abducted minority Sikh girl in Pakistan, who was converted to Islam and then married to a Muslim man,  has not returned to her family despite the government's apparent moves to reunite her with parents, people from different religions and faiths will be assembling in front of the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi to protest against the incident, sources said.

The protest will take place at 4 pm, sources said.

Family members of Jagjit Kaur, who was allegedly abducted and forcefully converted to Islam, have rejected reports that their girl has returned home.

A family member (brother) was quoted as saying in a video that was shared by Akali Dal leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa: "Our sister has not returned home." "These are wrong reports," he said.

He said no arrests have been made in the case so far.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, activists of Punjab Border Kisan Welfare Society, under the aegis of their State Vice President,Surjit Singh Bhura, burnt the effigy of Pakistan PM Imran Khan and demanded justice for the Sikhs in the neighbouring nation and stern action against abductors of Jagjit Kaur.

Meanwhile, sources said that the Pakistan government has communicated to the family that the decision of the girl to go with the family or with the boy will be as per her will.

"She is to stay at Darul Aman for seven days (as legal requirement)," a source said.

"During this time, the family can request a meeting with the girl (as per girls will)," added the source.

"During the stay at Darul Aman, she can meet and go out with the boy for maximum four hours," the source further said.

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