New Delhi, March 20: Making a big revelation, one of the Sufi clerics who had gone missing in Pakistan said that one of the papers in the neighbouring country had printed false news of them being Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agents.
This could be a hint to towards Pakistan’s conspiracy to convict innocent Indians reported ANI.
“There is a newspaper Ummat (in Pakistan) which has printed false statements (of the two clerics being RAW spies) and photos,” Nazim Nizami told media after the arrival.
The two Sufi clerics of Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah are scheduled to meet External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj later in the day.
They arrived earlier on Monday in the Capital.
“Both have reached home and are safe and sound. We had a talk and they were quite excited after coming back. We thank the Ministry of External Affairs and the central government for ensuring their safe return,” said Syed Sajid Ali, son of the 80-year-old cleric.
The duo on their arrival visited the Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah and were warmly welcomed by the people.
