Srinagar: Wives of ex-milltants who returned to Kashmir valley from Pakistan under the rehabilitation policy on Saturday staged protest demanding they be given travel documents to visit home.

They urged both India and Pakistan governments to intervene so that they can meet their families in Pakistan administered Kashmir.

A woman Zaiba said  she married Abdul Rashid Khan in 2003 in Pakistan and returned to the Valley in 2012. But since then, she has not been able to meet her family or relatives because of having no travel documents.

Another Pakistan woman, Kubra Gillani said she married a Kashmir man in 2010 at Pakistan and returned to Kashmir in 2014.

But last year, her husband, an ex-militant, divorced her leaving her literally on road. As such she has been allowed by a Kashmiri family to stay with them on compassionate grounds.

They said they appeal the governments of both the countries to provide them travel documents so that they can go home.
