Ahmedabad: Police on Friday detained a Pakistani youth who was found in a mosque in Bhuj town of Kutch district of Gujarat.
"It seems that he suffers from speech and hearing impairment," said Inspector General of Police, Border range, A K Jadeja.
Superintendent of Police D N Patel said the youth identified himself as Mahammad Farhanbasha Abubakar, aged around 23. He is from Mehboobpura in Islamabad in Pakistan, Patel said.
Abubakar was found by a cleric of Aman mosque in Sanjognagar in Bhuj town today. To a question about his native place and identity, he wrote on a piece of paper that he was from Islamabad, Patel said.
The cleric informed the local police who then detained the youth.
Patel said the local agencies had started interrogation to find out how he ended up in a Bhuj mosque and central security agencies too will join them. But so far, Abubakar was communicating only through writing, he added.
Earlier this week, a Pakistani national named Himmat Gul Hussain (40), who appeared to be mentally unstable, was held by Border Security Force along the border near Khavda in Kutch district. Later a local court directed the authorities to admit him to a mental hospital.
