Five Pakistani nationals on medical visas stranded in India managed to return to Pakistan through the Wagah land border on Sunday after coordination between Indian and Pak authorities. They had been stranded in Delhi and neighbouring Noida due to the Coronavirus travel restrictions.

In a statement, the Pakistan High Commission stated, “Five Pakistan nationals, namely Chaudhary Muhammad Ashfaq, Nighat Mukhtar, Yasir Mukhtar, Muhammad Khalid and Chaudhry Muhammad Asif, today, successfully returned to Pakistan via Attari-Wagah border. These individuals had come to India on medical visas and they were stranded in Noida/New Delhi (India) due to coronavirus - related restrictions. The regular movement across Attari-Wagah border is also currently suspended.”

 

It  was pointed out that “earlier, four stranded Pakistan nationals, including a 12-year old boy, Sabeeh Sheeraz, and his accompanying parents and grandfather, were repatriated via Attari-Wagah border on March 20”.
