MUMBAI -- Sheikh Nabi Ahmed, an Indian national was arrested in Pakistan for not possessing travel documents. He is a Mumbai-based businessman, the police said.

Ahmed resides in Jogeshwari (East) with his family.

The address on Ahmed's passport is of Jogeshwari (East) but according to the Meghwadi Police, Ahmed sold his property almost five years ago and has now shifted to someplace in Jogeshwari (West), the police said.

When contacted, Mumbai police spokesperson Rashmi Karandikar said, "It is the matter of Ministry of External Affairs (MEA)."

He was arrested on 19 May for not possessing proper documents. Ahmed has been booked for violating Article 14 of Pakistan's Foreign Act.

The arrest came days after the International Court of Justice stayed the execution of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav, who was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on charges of "involvement in espionage and sabotage activities" against the country.

Jadhav's case is the latest flash-point in the tensions between Pakistan and India.
