Two Indian clerics who went missing in Pakistan have been found, Sindh Police officials told the local media on Saturday.

The two clerics of Delhi's Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah were reportedly found in a remote village of Sindh province with no mobile connectivity.

Both were sent to Karachi, from where they will be deported to India on March 20.

Syed Asif Ali Nizami, 80, and his nephew Nazim Ali Nizami, were visiting Data Darbar in Lahore when they went missing on Wednesday.

However, reports of their recovery emerged after Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj spoke to Pakistan Foreign Affairs Adviser Sartaj Aziz.

"I just spoke to Syed Nazim Ali Nizami in Karachi. He told me that they are safe and will be back in Delhi tomorrow: EAM Sushma Swaraj", tweeted Sushma Swaraj.

She had earlier tweeted saying that Pakistan has assured all help to trace the clerics.

Separately, local media reports, citing unnamed sources, said both the clerics were recovered from Karachi's Nazimabad neighborhood, apparently the religious figures had been to "(rural) Sindh to meet their followers, where there was no communication network", which is why they could not inform their relatives about their whereabouts.
