Raj: Elderly Pak couple detained for not possessing documents

Jaipur, Apr 30 (PTI) An elderly Pakistani couple was today detained for interrogation in Chouhtan area of Barmer district for not possessing necessary documents.

Hasan Kamaal (68) and his wife Maluka (66), hailing from Tharparkar district of Pakistan’s Sindh province, had come on a tourist visa on Pakistani passport to meet their family members in Barmer district.

They had permission for Barmer city, but went to Kharia village falling under Chouhtan police station jurisdiction where their family members lived.

The couple did not have permission to visit the village and were detained for interrogation, Chouhtan Circle Officer Arjun Ram said.

He said that the couple is illiterate and probably was not informed about the rules. “We have sent them to appear before a joint interrogation team,” he added.
