ISLAMABAD: Pakistan is repatriating an Indian spy who had illegally entered the country and was involved in anti-state crimes and forging of documents, Foreign Office spokesperson said on Monday.
“Hamid Nehal Ansari, an Indian spy who had illegally entered Pakistan and was involved in anti-state crimes and forging documents, is being released upon completion of his sentence and is being repatriated to India,” Dr Mohammad Faisal wrote on Twitter.
Ansari, an Indian national, entered Pakistan without holding valid travel documents in 2012. He was sentenced to three years prison by a military court in December 2015.
The Indian national’s sentence ended on December 15, 2018.
The Peshawar High Court, earlier on December 13, ordered the release of Ansari within a month and directed the Interior Ministry to present a report in the regard in 14 days.
