However, Warsi, who is originally from Karachi, didn’t have proper documentation. He lived in India for four years with his wife and two children, until in 2007, someone reported him to the police. He was arrested for having fake papers and later sent to jail for espionage.

The Indian authorities have said they will release him and hand him over to the Pakistani authorities on December 26. The Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi has confirmed receiving such information.

Pakistan released Ansari on December 17 after the completion of his sentence. According to the Foreign Office, he was a spy who had entered Pakistan illegally.
