NEW DELHI: Two Indian clerics, who had gone missing in Pakistan, returned to Delhi on Monday.

Syed Asif Ali Nizami, 80, and his nephew Nazim Ali Nizami, clerics of Delhi's Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah, landed at the Delhi airport on Monday morning.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Sunday had announced that she had spoken to the duo, they were safe and would be arriving on Monday.

On a visit to Data Darbar in Lahore, they went missing on Wednesday.

Subsequently they were reported to be found in a remote village of Sindh province with no mobile connectivity.

Local media reports, citing unnamed sources, said both clerics were traced to Karachi's Nazimabad neighbourhood in rural Sindh where they had apparently gone to "meet their followers, where there was no communication network", which is why they could not inform their relatives about their whereabouts.
