Pakistan intelligence agencies are behind the disappearance of two Indian Sufi clerics who went missing in Pakistan, according to reports. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has sought a report on whereabouts of Muslim clerics from Delhi’s Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah who have gone missing in Karachi, Pakistan.
Asif Nizami, 82, and Nazim Ali Nizami, 66, had gone to Lahore on a pilgrimage to dargah of Baba Farid.
The duo went missing after landing in Karachi airport from Lahore, Swaraj said in a series of tweets.
After visiting Dargah, they had shared their photos on WhatsApp. They were supposed to go to Karachi from Lahore. Asif’s sister lives in Karachi and he was going to meet her.
