[b]New Delhi, 11 November, ( [/b]India and Pakistan are locked in a row over 'bizarre' abduction of the son of an employee working at the Pak High Commission here. The city police have discounted the claims of the Pak teenager Roshan Ali but that has not brought the curtains down on the controversy.

Complicating the scene, Punjab police Thursday arrested two Pak nationals with sensitive documents pertaining to vital army installations. They have been identified as Khurram Shehzad Ali alias Junaid Alam and Ali Mohammed alias Qasim Mata alias Mohd Saqlain. While Saqlain is here for two years, Khurram failed to return home after watching the Indo-Pak cricket match at Mohali.

Jallandhar police, who made the arrests said, they had recovered army maps, camera, and railway and bus tickets from the two Pakistanis. Investigators also said that both Khurram and Ali Mohammed had been receiving financial help from their mentors in Pakistan.

More than these arrests, it is the 'abduction' episode that is likely to be focus for a while.

Pakistan High Commission has lodged a formal protest with the Indian Foreign Office and also informed the local police following the disappearance of the boy on Wednesday night.
