Pakistan Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf arrived on Saturday in Ajmer amidst tight security and offered prayers at Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti’s dargah. Ashraf and the Pakistan delegation reached dargah in three Indian Air Force helicopters to offer prayers at the famous Sufi shrine. The Pakistan Prime Minister landed at Googhra helipad, which is 12 km away from Ajmer and traveled in a bulletproof car to the Sufi shrine. His cavalcade comprised of nearly 20 vehicles. The district administration has asked residents, whose houses face the dargah to keep their windows shut during Ashraf’s visit and all the shops dealing with pilgrimage items situated in the lane leading to the shrine have been closed between 1.30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
