Jaipur: In a short relief for several Pakistani Hindus, the government on Monday gave them a 15-day visa extension for stay in India, claims report.

As per a report, 88 Pakistan Hindu families to escape the atrocities committed on them in Pakistan had come to India on pilgrim visa.

The authorities here had given them today's ultimatum to go back to Pakistan.

However, after hearing their plea the government has decided to extend their visa for 15 more days.

These Pakistani nationals have for the past two months been staying here and say that they do not want to go back.

They have been staying in the hutment, Jogiyon-ke-Vas, near Gajroopsagar in the district, the officer said. President of Seemant Lok Sangathan, Ravi Lalwani, had earlier said these people, who belong to Darki in Pakistan, had come on a six-month visa to India issued on April 30 this year.

After visiting Haridwar, they came to Jaisalmer via Delhi and Jodhpur, Lalwani said, adding that this group had applied for extension of their visa.
