Man with Pakistani passport, Aadhaar held

A 50-year-old man, possessing a Pakistani passport as well as an Aadhaar card, was apprehended when he reportedly tried to enter the Air Force station in Jaisalmer, police said Friday.

The man, identified as Purkha Ram, was nabbed on Thursday and was being interrogated, Jaisalmer Kotwali SHO Derawar Singh said.

Ram was a displaced Pakistani Hindu migrant and had been renewing his visa, Singh said, adding that Ram had an Aadhaar card with a residential address in Sri Ganganagar district.

Ram has been living in India for over a decade and investigators were looking into how he managed to get an Aadhaar card, the SHO said.

SHO Singh added that Purkha Ram was working at a farm and living with his family in Jaisalmer.
