In a positive update, a man from Kanpur returned to his home after being jailed in Pakistan for eight years on espionage charges. His family was utterly in shock, as tears fell from their eyes on seeing him after so many years.
70-year-old Shamsuddin was brought back by the native authorities on Sunday. He was welcomed with warm hugs and garlands as his return brought upon a festive feel like Diwali in his locality. A smiling Shamsuddin met his sobbing daughters, and his sister lost consciousness briefly seeing the 70-year-old after such a long time.
As per the report by news agency PTI, Shamsuddin had moved to Pakistan with an acquaintance in 1992 on getting a 90-day visit visa and then settled there after getting the country’s citizenship in 1994. In 2012, the Pakistan government arrested him on charges of espionage and locked him up at a jail in Karachi.
Shamsuddin reached India through the Attari-Wagah border on October 26 and served the required quarantine period in Amritsar amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
A shoemaker by profession, Shamsuddin was also charged with the offence of having a fake passport. He told PTI that, “Indians are “treated very badly” in Pakistan. “They are treated like enemies. There is a lot of bribery and corruption in Pakistan.” He also added, “after the end of the visa period, people stranded in both countries should be allowed to return home.”
