Dehradun: At least 23 Pakistani citizens living on long-term visas in Dehradun were found processing voter ID cards and ration cards. They were busted during a secret drive by the local intelligence unit of Dehradun police. 

The people caught are Pakistani Sindhi Hindus who have been living legally in Dehradun with their long-term visas for many years. Even though they have a long-term visa, they aren’t supposed to acquire ration cards and voter IDs. 
Currently, there are about 275 Pakistani citizens in Dehradun with their population mainly concentrated in Raipur, Patel Nagar, Dharampur and Vasant Vihar.

Deputy inspector general, Garhwal range, Ajay Rautela said, “The Pakistani citizens were nabbed during a drive by LIU of Dehradun police to find out if they are holding any official documents illegally. During the drive, 12 were found to have voter-id cards while 11 were found with ration cards”.
