Indian national arrested in Islamabad for not carraying travel documents:Report

An Indian national was on Sunday arrested in Islamabad for not carrying travel documents, according to a media report.

The Indian man, who has not been identified, was arrested from F-8 area of Islamabad for not having complete travel documents, Samaa TV reported.

A case has been filed against him under Article 14 of the Foreign Act.

He has been sent to jail on judicial remand, the report said.

An official of the Indian High Commission, however, said the mission does not have any information about the arrest so far.

The arrest came days after the International Court of Justice stayed the execution of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of "involvement in espionage and sabotage activities" against the country.

Pakistan claims its security forces arrested him from its restive Balochistan province on March 3 last year after he reportedly entered from Iran. However, India maintains that he was kidnapped from Iran where he had business interests after retiring from the Navy.

Jadhav's case is the latest flashpoint in the tensions between Pakistan and India.
