A Pakistani couple was arrested by Mumbai police as they had been living illegally in the city for about 20 years. The arrested couple was identified as Ahmed Daudani (55), who sold helmets outside Andheri railway station, and his wife Ashraf (53), who is a homemaker.

The two resided in Green Park Society in Andheri (west) but have Pakistani citizenship. The couple was held on the basis of a tip-off received by inspector Prafull Wagh.

Earlier, Ahmed was an Indian National who had left India in 1986. He lost his Indian citizenship and in 1999, he returned back to India with his wife and two daughters.

According to reports, during interrogation, the family confessed to have stayed in Mumbai and Thane since returning from Pakistan. Earlier they used to stay at Mira Road before shifting to Andheri in 2008. The couple even revealed that they have obtained their passport using fake documents.

Paramjit Singh Dahiya, deputy commissioner of police told TOI that after Ahmed lost his Indian citizenship, he married in Pakistan and became a citizen there. He even claimed that he was fed up in Pakistan and so he returned to India with his family in 1999.
