New Delhi: With nearly 1,300 Pakistani nationals untraceable over the past three years after their visa expired, the government on Wednesday said it has introduced an online system of sharing information by various agencies for better tracking of the visitors.

"As per information available, 1,283 Pakistani nationals remain untraced/missing as on June 30, 2011," Minister of State for Home Mullappally Ramachandran informed the Rajya Sabha.

The minister said intelligence agencies and state police regularly make efforts to locate the missing Pakistani nationals and arrange to send them back to their country once they are located.

"In order to help in better tracking of Pakistani nationals, an online system has been introduced by which every Pakistani national seeking Indian visa is required to file details on-line," he said.

Ramachandran said this process ensures that intelligence agencies and state police have full details of the Pakistani nationals, including their photographs, even before they enter India, which would help them to track the Pakistani national after they arrive.
