The Pakistan nationals were detained in a hotel following their return from the shrine of Khawaja Moinuddin Chishty in Ajmer.

According to a CID official, 8 of the 17 members, excluding Hussain, had no visa documents and passport at the time of their Ajmer visit.

Later, they called the Jaipur hotel and got the papers emailed instantly following which they were allowed to leave, the official said.

The delegation returned to Jaipur.
