Gone to neighboring Pakistan during the Baisakhi festival, a 24-year-old Indian man has gone missing there.
Identified as Amarjit Singh and a resident of Amritsar, he was accompanying other Sikh pilgrims in Pakistan on April 12.
The disappearance came to notice, it is said, when he failed to collect his passport from the officials of Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) within the stipulated time.
According to an initial probe, he disappeared on reaching Lahore from Nankana Sahib.
A search to locate him is underway, the report said.
This comes amid the reports that one woman Kiran Bala alias Amna Bibi, also part of Sikh religious delegation and hailing from Punjab’s Hoshiarpur district, had arrived in Lahore by a special train on April 12 to attend Baisakhi festival.
But then she embraced Islam and married a resident of Lahore on April 16 at a ceremony held at an Islamic seminary here.
