Missing Pakistanis could be in Himachal Pradesh
(IANS) Dozens of Pakistanis who went missing after a cricket match between the two countries earlier this year could be in Himachal Pradesh, say police.
The Intelligence Bureau has reportedly alerted the state government saying the missing Pakistanis could be hiding in Shimla, Kinnaur and Kullu districts of the state besides some other places in the country.
"We have alerted the police chiefs of all these three districts," said Additional State Police Chief B.S. Thind.
Nearly 3,800 Pakistani fans were given visas by the Indian government to witness a Test match between India and Pakistan in Mohali in March.
After the match, 55 Pakistanis failed to report at the Wagah border, arousing the suspicion of the authorities in India.
Police across the country were put on high alert after the recent attempt by terrorists to break into the disputed Ram temple complex in Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh.
