Islamabad: At least 40 officers of a government body which denied that a terrorist caught in India was a Pakistani have been sacked for issuing fake identity cards.

All those dismissed are from the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA).

They included a director general, a general manager, a deputy general manager, an intelligence officer and managers, Geo TV reported.

All of them operated out of NADRA offices in Karachi and were allegedly involved in issuing fake computerized national identity cards.

Four director generals were also demoted for misusing their authority, the report said.

NADRA denied that the terrorist caught in Udhampur in India on August 5 was a Pakistani, saying he did not exist in their data base.

The mother was found guilty of two counts of forced marriage and was scheduled to be sentenced.

The court heard the girl had been entered into a “marriage contract” with the man years before in Pakistan and became pregnant at 13. The victim had an abortion on returning to the UK, with her doctor reporting his concerns to social services.
