Two Indian nationals have been arrested in Pakistan after they were found living illegally in Karachi city for the last eight years, census officials said.

The duo from Gujarat had been arrested from Gulshan-e-Iqbal and Saddar areas of Karachi on Monday during the ongoing countrywide census, Sindh Census Commissioner Abdul Aleem Memon said.

The census officials alerted the authorities about the presence of the two Indians which led to a raid by police and intelligence agencies.

According to the officials, the two men have been living in the city for the last eight years.

They have been identified as Hassan Ahmad, a resident of Ahmadabad and Waseem Hassan from Gujarat, local Dunya TV reported.

Both the persons are living in the country without any legal documents.

Pakistan began its first census in about two decades with the assistance of over 200,000 troops and civilian officials on March 15 to collect crucial data that will be used for key policy decisions, including delimitation of constituencies.

The 6th census would be completed by the end of May.
