Sounds strange as i have never heard something of the sort happening with anyone here atleast. You got some of your original docs back anyhow
. Which country you have applied from and are you holding a dual nationality !!
"original nikkah nama and BD is requirement of LOndon visa office" , yes but only for Pakistani applicants.They have sent you both original marriage cert and its english translation or just the original nikkah nama which is in urdu and kept the english trans (original)!!
Did you send them birth cert for your kids in original ?? I think they never asked for it, but asked for original birth cert for yourself and your spouse !
Let me know when you receive your PER as our timelines are pretty close, my app reached there on 30th May.
