Dubai's immigration authorities have discontinued the three-month visit visa for Pakistanis and Filipinos for the next three months, Noor Mohammad, a local travel agent, told Dawn.com on Friday.

"We have been directed to refuse applications for the three-month visa starting June 1," he said; adding, however, that those travellers who had submitted their application before June 1 would still be processed.

He added that this is not the first time the Emirati government has banned such visas. In the past, similar restrictions have been placed on travel to the country, particularly during Ramazan, he said.

News outlet ProPakistani reported that Pakistanis can still apply for 14- and 30-day visas for the emirate, adding that those travellers who already hold a 90-day visa need not worry about the ban.

 
 

ProPakistani quoted a Dubai-based travel agency as saying that they are considering processing applications through other emirates in the UAE, but that would incur extra costs and entail more restrictions.

A dual-seat variant of the JF-17 Thunder fighter jet co-developed by the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) and China took its maiden test flight in Chengdu on Friday, the PAF said in a press release.

The JF-17B "is currently entering the testing phase", the PAF said, terming the development of the dual-seater "a major milestone towards self-reliance".

Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman was chief guest at the test event today hosted by the Aviation Industry Corporation of China Executive Vice President Li Yuhai.

The JF-17B is slated to boost the operational and training capabilities of the PAF, the press release said. "It will further enhance the advanced combat training of PAF fighter pilots on this indigenous war fighting machine."

Production of the first JF-17B was initiated by Pakistan and China during a joint ceremony at Chengdu Aerospace Corporation last year.

The JF-17 Thunder's operational history

The JF-17 Thunder, a single-engine multi-role fighter jet, and was jointly developed by China and Pakistan. Development on the aircraft started in 1999, and the maiden flight was conducted in 2003.

The initial Block 1 JF-17s were received in 2007, with production of the upgraded Block 2 JF-17s started in 2013. The upgraded models have upgraded avionics, air-to-air refuelling capability, data link, enhanced electronic warfare capability and enhanced load carrying ability.

The JF-17 can be equipped with air-to-air and air-to-ground ordinance. The aircraft mounts both short-range infra-red air to air missiles along with longer ranged radar-guided BVR missiles, an essential capability for a frontline interceptor.

The aircraft can carry 8,000lbs of ordinance on seven external hardpoints, which is an adequate amount of ordinance for any mission profile. The JF-17 enhances the much needed capability of the air force in beyond visual range (BVR) engagements.

The JF-17 is a capable platform, and is on its way to form the backbone of the PAF. It was reported that between 250 and 300 aircraft will be inducted into the air force in order to phase out the ageing fleet of some other aircraft models that are still in operation.

For the Pakistan Air Force, the JF-17 fills the gap that had arisen due to an ageing inventory, which was further impacted by sanctions placed on the country following the nuclear tests in 1998.

LAHORE: The Sargodha child pornography case, unprecedented in the country, suffered a blow when none of the children allegedly exploited or their parents approached by the Federal Investigation Agency were willing to record statement against the prime suspect.

“I did work with Manto uncle (suspect Saadat Amin’s nickname) but it is not me in the nude photos and videos you are talking about,” an FIA officer in Lahore quotes a boy as telling the agency.

“Please do not contact me again…Leave me out of this... it is too shameful a thing to talk about and I have nothing to do with it,” the officer cited the boy, aged 14 according to him, as having said.

Next, father of another child simply denied that he knew the 45-year-old Amin. “I don’t know who this man was and what business he did,” the man is said to have told the investigators. When told that his son’s ‘objectionable’ pictures were found in possession of Amin, he responded: “Those pictures are fake. Why do you want to create problems for us? Do you want us to flee our native town in shame? “

The Punjab Rangers on Thursday warned that the display of weapons and the employment of security guards for personal safety are illegal under the National Action Plan (NAP).

"It follows that only security personnel of registered government institutions will be deployed," Punjab Rangers Col Amjad Iqbal said during a press briefing.

He added that Pakistan Rangers Punjab will work with the Punjab police to conduct operations and take strict action against those who violate the law in this manner.

Col Amjad also stated that strict action will be taken against private security personnel found to be in illegal possession of or using uniforms designated for the army, civil or military institutions.

During the briefing, the colonel also provided details regarding operations carried out by the Punjab Rangers.

He said that four terrorists affiliated with the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan were killed during a recent operation and a large cache of weapons were recovered from them.

Havaldar Khalid, an officer of the Punjab Rangers, was injured in the operation when militants opened fire, Col Amjad said.

"Four suicide jackets, one rocket launcher, six rockets, six detectors, four charged boosters and 18 other weapons were recovered from the terrorists," he said.

Operations were also conducted in Sheikupura, Sambrial and Kharian, Col Amjad said.

"During these operations, six suspected militants were taken into custody," he said, adding that a large number of weapons was also seized from them.

"Pakistan Rangers Punjab is engaged in carrying out operations in all suspicious areas with other institutions," the colonel added.

The Foreign Office said on Thursday that the role of foreign intelligence agencies cannot be ruled out in the disappearance of retired Lt Col Habib Zahir, a former Pakistan Army officer who mysteriously went missing in Nepal earlier this month.

Addressing a weekly press briefing in Islamabad, FO spokesman Nafees Zakaria said Zahir had been trapped in Nepal "after being lured into a job offer".

He said Pakistani authorities are in touch with the Nepali government to trace the missing ex-army man and Nepal is cooperating in this regard.

Zakaria, however, warned against linking Zahir's disappearance with the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav, the Indian spy sentenced to death by a Pakistani tribunal earlier this week on charges of espionage and sabotage earlier this month.

"It is unreasonable on India's part to link the Jadhav case with Habib Zahir," he said, reminding that Zahir had retired from the army a long time before Jadhav's arrest.

Zakaria seemed to be responding to a startling allegation published by an Indian news outlet quoting unnamed Indian security sources, who claimed that Zahir was part of the team that had picked up convicted spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.

“Zahir was at the Indo-Nepal border last week. He was in the team that had trailed Jadhav. There is definitely a connection between the two cases,” The Indian Express quoted an Indian officer as saying on Wednesday.

Col Zahir, who retired from the army in 2014, went missing on April 6 from Lumbini, a Buddhist pilgrimage site close to the Indian border, where he arrived after somebody by the name of Mark Thompson had contacted him via email and telephone for a job interview in Nepal.

It was reported that a probe by the officer’s family and friends showed that the UK telephone number from which he had received the call for the interview was computer generated, while the email domain and its associated website were registered in India. This prompted concerns that the Indian spy agency RAW could have been behind the kidnapping.

Referring to Jadhav's conviction, the FO spokesman said the Indian spy was a serving Indian Navy officer and Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent who "confessed to carrying out terrorist activities in Pakistan".

He said clear evidence exists of Indian involvement in Pakistan's internal affairs and India's attempts to spread terrorism in a sovereign country.

"India has been caught red-handed interfering in Pakistan," Zakaria said.

He claimed that India has been involved in interfering in Pakistani affairs in the past as well.

"Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Bangladesh [also] confessed to India's involvement in [then] East Pakistan in 1971," he said.
