Veteran actress Sharmila Tagore on Monday crossed the Wagah Border into India, a day after Pakistan’s immigration authorities stopped her for not having a ‘police report’ of her stay here.
When Sharmila reached Wagah Border on Sunday the immigration officials told her that ‘police report’ was missing from her travel documents.
The 71-year-old actress was then stopped by the Federal Investigation Agency Immigration at Wagah Border.
A protocol official accompanying Sharmila contacted the police station concerned and arranged the report in about two hours through fax. By the time the police report matter was resolved she changed her mind to cross the border and decided to leave for India on Monday (today).
During her stay here, Sharmila also called on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at his palatial Jati Umra residence in Raiwind and had a dinner with him and his family members.
