A Pakistan embassy official has been reported missing in Austria along with some sensitive documents, reports said on Wednesday. 

The Pakistan Army official, resident of Sara-i-Kharboza, was appointed as a clerk at the Pakistan Embassy in Austria about five months back and was handed some sensitive documents by the defence ministry. 

Media reports say that he was made an official in charge of some important and sensitive national affairs there, adding that "it was very important duty, besides sensitive for country's sovereignty."

A case has been registered against him under Sections 109  (abetment) and 409 (criminal breach of trust by public servant, or by banker, merchant or agent) of the Pakistan Penal Code.

The official went missing on January 2, the First Investigation Report (FIR) stated. His wife has said that her husband left the embassy out of his free will and will "return after five years."

The FIR further reads that it is highly likely that the missing official had "become a tool in the hands of the enemy of the country."
