ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has taken notice of arrival of six Indian nationals at Badin airbase without security clearance.
According to information received by the minister from security institutions, the Indian nationals had come to Badin as an advance team of a dignitary from the United Arab Emirates coming to Pakistan for hunting.
Chaudhry Nisar took notice of the negligence of the Sindh government towards the rules and procedures for foreign guests coming to Pakistan for hunting.
The security institutions told him that the advance team comprising six Indian citizens had arrived at Badin airbase before it left for Thatta.
According to a statement released by the interior ministry, it has sent a communication to the provincial governments and Pakistan’s missions abroad, directing them to implement the rules for hunting in letter and spirit.
“It should be ensured that foreign staff coming with royal family (members) follows the rules for obtaining Pakistani visa,” the letter reads. It seeks to ensure that the staff of guests from abroad arrives at bigger airports, instead of coming to smaller bases.
