Notably, the Pakistan citizens (all Sindhi Hindus) had been living in India legally, but there is still little clarity on the time they have spent here.

Those living on LTVs are not supposed to get voter IDs or ration cards.

Reportedly, around 275 Pakistan citizens are living in Dehradun. The areas where they reside are Raipur, Patel Nagar, Dharampur and Vasant Vihar.

Senior police official talks about the drive

"The Pakistani citizens were nabbed during a drive by LIU of Dehradun police to find if they are holding any official documents illegally. During the drive, 12 were found to have voter-id cards while 11 were found with ration cards," said DIG, Garhwal range, Ajay Rautela.
