Nizamuddin Dargah head priest, nephew go missing: Sushma Swaraj informs matter to Pakistan government


The head priest of Nizamuddin Dargah and his nephew goes missing in Pakistan today. The External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj informed Pakistan government about the matter on Friday.

“We have taken up this matter with Government of Pakistan and requested them for an update on both the Indian nationals in Pakistan,” Sushma Swaraj tweeted.

“Indian nationals Syed Asif li Nizami matured 80 years and his nephew Nazim Ali Nizami had gone to Pakistan on 8 March 2017,” she included.

The reports revealed that Syed Asif had gone to Pakistan to visit his sick sister who lives in Karachi. On the other hand, Nazim visits their relatives in Pakistan and Sufi shrines yearly.

“They had gone to Lahore on March 14 to visit Daata Darbar (place of worship) and were planned to come back to Karachi at night of March 15 by Shaheen Air (flight no. NL149),” their Karachi-based relative, Syed Wazir Nizami said.

“While they were at the Lahore air terminal, I got a call from the air terminal. The guest did not tell his name, and said that specific papers of my cousin Nazim were mistaken thus he was being kept and won’t have the capacity to go to Karachi.” They included.

“Asif uncle did not leave the air terminal even after nightfall had passed. At the point when Shaheen Air authorities at Lahore airplane terminal were drawn nearer, they said that a few people had come and brought Asif with them… it was very puzzling,” he included.

The contact number of Syed Asif has been given to the Indian High Commission in Islamabad.
