Indian sufi clerics, who had gone missing in Pakistan, will be returning to India on Monday, says External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.
Sushma Swaraj, who was constantly in touch with Pakistan authorities over the matter, shared the information via her official Twitter handle.
I just spoke to Syed Nazim Ali Nizami in Karachi. He told me that they are safe and will be back in Delhi tomorrow. #Nizamuddin— Sushma Swaraj (@SushmaSwaraj) March 19, 2017
The clerics are Syed Asif Ali Nizami, the head priest of New Delhi's Nizamuddin Dargah, and his nephew Nazim Ali Nizami. They were on a visit to Pakistan from March 8 and were missing since the following weekend.
The family had claimed that the two clerics were untraceable after they had landed in Karachi airport.
