A Pakistani man was arrested living illegally in India on Tuesday for violating visa rules by buying land, getting into the voters’ list and obtaining a voter ID, police said.
The police stumbled on the identity of Mohammad Younus, from Karachi in Pakistan, who had been living in Dasna on a long-term visa since 1956.
He also bought property in his name, a police officer said.
“Although he has not been interrogated properly, we are sure he may have opened a bank account also,” said the officer.
Younus has been booked under the Foreigners Act.
