Here is what happened!

Mr. Muhammad Saif-ur-Rehman Khan has done his A-levels from the prestigious University College in Islamabad (UCI), affiliated with the University of London. Saif had extensively travelled around the world including the United Kingdom and the United States. He had worked in the hospitality industry for a while. He learnt about a Spanish language learning opportunity with a hotel internship in Chile from his college principal who also happened to be the visa counselor at the Chilean embassy in Islamabad. After completing his Spanish language course at eFronteres, he was doing an internship at a hotel in Santiago, Chile.

A few days back Saif while chatting on Skype with his family on Friday 7th May 2010, told his father that a person named “Bill” had called him from the US embassy in Santiago. He had asked him to come to the US embassy for some “identification check-up” and some “name check”.

Sensing that it was strange that he was being called presumably from the US embassy without any reason, he informed an officer at the Pakistani embassy who knew him. Therefore, he called back “Bill” using his cell phone on the number that the call originated from and was informed that he could come to the embassy on Monday at 3:00 pm when he would be off from work at the hotel.

On Monday morning, Saif visited the Institute’s (eFronteres) director, and related the matter. At 3:00 pm on Monday (local time) Saif went to the US embassy with his educational documents and passport (which already had the 5 years multiple visa stamped).

Since yesterday, his family has been trying to contact him on his mobile/cell phone number but to no avail. Then all of a sudden, this news flash on a local TV channel caught his family’s attention back in Pakistan. They are shocked and extremely worried about his condition and detention. They contacted the Chilean embassy in Islamabad.
