MUMBAI: Pakistani singer, Adnan Sami is likely to acquire Indian citizenship soon, Times of India has claimed on Saturday.
The Indian media outlet stated that Indian attorney general and union home ministry have vetted approval of Sami’s plea. The plea states that Sami would give up Pakistani citizenship permanently. Earlier in August, the Indian authorities had extended Sami’s visa for an indefinite time. The artist who has been living in India for past at least 15 years had applied for citizenship twice. However, Indian authorities threw the plea out both the times. On the other hand, Pakistani cricket team’s former captain Shoaib Malik’s wife, Sania Mirza is also fighting the government in the matter.
