Pakistan police have arrested four men from Lahore and Faisalabad

A Sikh pilgrim who went to visit the Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib three days ago with a 'jatha' (group of pilgrims) has been missing in Pakistan. 

Until now, Pakistan police have arrested four men from Lahore and Faisalabad.

The Kartarpur Sahib Corridor is a 4.7-kilometre-long passage that connects Dera Baba Nanak Sahib in India's Gurdaspur with Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan's Kartarpur was formally thrown open to pilgrims on November 9. This was three days before the 550th anniversary of the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak Dev.

An agreement on the modalities for operationalising the corridor signed between India and Pakistan on October 24 had paved way for the inauguration ahead of the Guru Nanak's Prakash Parv.
