At least three Pakistani nationals were detained by Bengaluru police on Thursday after allegedly failing to provide required documents for their stay in India.

The police also took into custody Kerala resident, Mohammed Shihab, for 'forging' documents of the Pakistani family, and facilitating their 'illegal' entry into the country via Nepal, according to NDTV.

The Pakistanis have been identified as Sameera, Kashif Shamshudin and Kiran Gulam Ali.

Meanwhile, India Today claimed the family was travelling for their daughter's marriage in India.

"All four have been charged under Sections of Foreigners' Act, Passport Act, conspiracy and creation of false documents and misrepresentation," said Bengaluru police commissioner Praveed Sood.
