An Indian was allegedly arrested in Islamabad for incomplete travel documents, triggering a police search on Sunday in and near an address in a western Mumbai suburb.
The suspect, Sheikh Nabi Ahmed, is from “755, behind Tabassum hotel, Bandra Plot, Jogeshwari East”. But police were yet to locate his family.
Locals said the family used to stay in the area, but sold their home and moved out some years ago.
“I do not know about their current address,” said a resident, who didn’t wish to be named.
The arrest on May 19 aroused curiosity as another Mumbai man, 46-year-old navy officer-turned-businessman Kulbhushan Jadhav, was allegedly kidnapped by Pakistanis from an Iranian port and a military court convicted him of espionage and terrorism.
India and Pakistan are locked in a legal battle over Jadhav in the International Court of Justice.
According to Pakistani media reports, Ahmed was taken into custody after he failed to produce any travel documents when he was stopped at a checkpost on Nazimuddin Road in Sector F-8 of Islamabad.
He was booked for illegal entry and stay in the country, and a magistrate sent him to jail.
An official of the Indian high commission said the mission does not have any information about the arrest.
