Pakistani nationals residing in Indian state Rajasthan’s Bikaner have been told to leave the country within 48 hours, according to an order issued by district collector Kumar Pal Gautam on Monday.
In the aftermath of the Pulwama attack in Indian occupied Kashmir, Gautam said that there is resentment amongst people after the unfortunate incident.
Since Bikaner shares its borders with Pakistan, it has issued prohibitory orders under CrPC Section 144.
The orders have prohibited Pakistani nationals to stay in rest houses, hotels and even hospitals in Bikaner.
Businessmen in Bikaner district will not keep business relations directly or indirectly with Pakistani nationals and will not give any kind of employment to Pakistani citizens, says the order.
“In the matter of receiving spoof calls from Pakistan, no citizen through any medium of telecommunication will exchange any kind of army or sensitive information to unknown persons. Any person of Bikaner district will not use sim cards registered in Pakistan,” added the order.
The order is applicable for two months, but would not be applicable to Pakistani citizens who have registered with the foreigners registration officer, the district administration said.
