Indian visitors to face strict monitoring in Pakistan: report

Islamabad: Indians visiting Pakistan will face "strict monitoring" by the interior ministry, a media report quoting a source from the ministry said on Saturday.

The interior ministry has directed all four provinces -- Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa -- to monitor the activities of foreigners, especially Indians, who visit Pakistan, Geo TV quoted the source as saying.

The ministry has also directed Gilgit Baltistan and Pakistan adminstered Kashmir to follow the new orders.

The new orders came days after Pakistan arrested Kulbhushan Jadhav, an Indian, in Balochistan. 

According to Pakistani officials, Jadhav allegedly confessed to "fuelling" the Baloch separatist movement and "sabotage" the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project.

Pakistan alleged Jadhav was a RAW agent. The Indian government has denied he was linked to the government in any way.
