Indians in Pak custody; Indian mission seeks help to identify Indians
Islamabad (Oct 18, 2014): Unable to determine the identity of a number of people believed to be Indians in Pakistan's custody, the Indian High Commission here has issued an appeal to the people back home to help in their identification.
The Indian High Commission has been informed by the Pakistan government about a number of individuals in their custody and who they believed are Indian nationals.
"The High Commission of India has not been able to establish the national identity of these individuals in the absence of sufficient detail and information of their background and place of permanent residence," according to a High Commission statement.
The High Commission stated that it is keen to establish the antecedents of those in the list who may be Indians.
"Members of the public in India, especially those who may have knowledge of any of these persons from past acquaintance, are requested to share details in this regard with the High Commission of India and the Ministry of External Affairs," the High Commission said in its appeal.
