35 Pakistani Detained For Violating Visa Rules


Jaisalmer:  Thirty-five Pakistani nationals on Saturday detained by police for allegedly violating visa rules in the district.

A group of 35 Hindu pilgrims from the neighboring country, including men, women and children were issued pilgrim visa for Mathura and Haridwar only.

Without any specific visa for visiting Jaisalmer, they arrived in Jaisalmer last night and were detained from Ramdevra temple, SP Rajiv Pachar said.

India and Pakistan follow a city-specific visa regime, which in this case seems to have been violated by these pilgrims.

SP Pachar said the pilgrims are being interrogated and would be released if nothing suspicious is found.
