ISLAMABAD: Two Chinese nationals were reportedly injured after a robbery attempt in a posh locality in Islamabad on Tuesday.
They have lodged a complaint at the Kohsar police station over the incident which took place in Sector F-7 over a financial dispute. However, both men do not speak English or Urdu, and police officials are trying to arrange translators to communicate with them.
The Chinese citizens said they are running a hotel business in the three-storey building. They claimed that the building owner, along with other men, thrashed them over a business disagreement and also took away their travelling documents and money.
Both foreigners are said to have entered Pakistan in December last year. They also claimed to have been injured in the incident. The Chinese nationals, in a written statement, have also asked the Interior Ministry to provide security.
On May 24 two Chinese nationals, a man and woman, were kidnapped from Jinnah Town area of Quetta. Both were Chinese instructors at a cultural centre. Their whereabouts have not been ascertained and police are looking from all angles.
