Pakistani singer detained for travelling on expired passport
The Pakistani Consulate of Dubai has confirmed that Pakistani pop singer and President of Youth Wing of Pakistan Tehreek-eInsaf, Abrar-Ul-Haq, has been detained at the Dubai International Airport for travelling on an expired passport, even as organisers denied the claims.
Abdul Waheed, press counsellor, Pakistan Consulate of Dubai spoke said: “Abrar-Ul-Haq is currently detained at Dubai Airport, because he was travelling on an expired passport. He has not been arrested. “He forgot his valid passport in Pakistan and travelled to Dubai on an expired one.”
Waheed continued: “Other members of his entourage will be arriving on the next flight and are bringing his valid passport with them. He should be allowed to leave then. “We are liaising with the Dubai authorities to ensure the matter is resolved soon.”
