Tehlka TV – said that 26 India nationalists employed at Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif’s various sugar mills have exemption from ‘Police Reporting’.
Tehlka TV – which uses investigative journalism to highlight public and national issues – said that it received a list containing information on 26 Indians working in various sugars mills of the ‘Sharif Brothers’.
According to Pakistan’s work-visa policy every person has to report to the local police and similar policy is imposed in India for Pakistani nationals but strangely the ones on the list have special exemptions.
Nambi Shridhar was also issued the visa under the same category – Exempted from Police Reporting (EPR) visa. Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Chief Tahirul Qadri expressed concerns that several among the employed Indians could be spies. While addressing a rally, he alleged that there were between 200-300 Indians working in the mills owned by Shahbaz Sharif and Nawaz Sharif.
PAT’s chief further alleged that the visas were issued to these Indians on directives from the Sharif brothers. “How many of these actually belong to the Indian intelligence agency – Research and Analysis Wing (RAW)?” he said.
