Mumbai: Police officials in Mumbai are on high alert following the disappearance of 26 Pakistani nationals in the city.
The Pakistani citizens, reported to be missing from the past two to three weeks, are being tracked down by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS).
According to The Hindustan Times, following intelligence reports about threats coming from moles in Pakistan's ISI, police officials went on high alert after they were unable to trace them through their 'C-forms'.
The C form provides details about the address of Pakistani nationals in India along with copies of passport, visa, and residential permit.
Officials said none of the Pakistanis provided correct details on their C forms with respect to who they had come to meet or where they were staying.
Maharashtra ATS has dispatched teams to all hotels and lodges in Mumbai to find them, a report said.
Following reports of Indian Mujahideen conducting 'reconnaissance' in the city in the past few months, the alert is believed to be based on this piece of information.
The founders of IM, Riyaz Shahbandri alias Riyaz Bhatkal and his elder brother Iqbal are reportedly under the protection of the ISI in Pakistan.
