LAHORE: In a welcoming gesture, a visually impaired girl flew all the way from the United States to tie the knot with a former Pakistani visually impaired cricketer in Bahawalpur.

Brittney Montgomery and Mujeebur Rehman, according to details met on Facebook and became friends. Two years ago Montgomery embraced Islam before flying to Bahawalpur and tying the knot with the fast bowler.

However, this is not the first time a woman has flown across the globe to tie the knot with a Pakistani man after meeting on social media.

Earlier this year, Mary Kathleen travelled all the way to Haripur to marry Adeel Awan whom she met on Facebook.
