Missing Delhi Clerics Detained By Pakistan's Intelligence Agency, Claim Family Members

On Friday, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said that the centre had taken up the matter with Pakistan.

"No clue to the missing Indian priests has been found so far".

"I spoke to Mr Sartaj Aziz, Pakistan PM's adviser on foreign affairs, regarding missing Indian nationals", Sushma wrote on Twitter.

While a website, Ummat.Net, was quoted by some tweets as saying that the visiting clerics from India had links with the Indian external intelligence agency, Research & Analysis Wing (RAW), commentators remained sceptical. Jald hi baat ho jayegi unse: Aamir Nizami, son of Asif Nizami who went missing in Pak. After all, this is hardly the first time they had travelled to Pakistan or had met people from the country.

The foreign office had yesterday formally communicated its concerns over the disappearance of 82-year-old Syed Asif Nizami and his 66-year-old nephew Nazim Ali Nizami to Pakistan.


According to Pakistani media reports, both clerics had been in "interior Sindh where there was no communication network" and that is why they could not tell their relatives about there whereabouts.

Two senior clerics from Delhi's Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah, who had gone to Pakistan, went missing since yesterday.

"Their mobile phones have been switched off since", Sazid told newsmen. "At the Lahore airport, my cousin was stopped by the airport authorities to clear some documentation and my father was asked to board the flight". They reportedly went missing from Lahore airport, from where they were scheduled to fly to Karachi, a few days ago.

"Pakistan's Foreign Office has confirmed they have been traced and reached Karachi", the Press Trust of India reported, citing unnamed sources.
