Chushti will be submitting his document in Indian High Commission at Islamabad today.

He was flown to Pakistan through a special aircraft after Indian Supreme Court granted him bail in a murder case and allowed to visit to Pakistan.

The Pakistani virologist, who is in his late 80s, was welcomed by Interior Minister Rehman Malik and greeted with rose-petals by hundreds of supporters of Pakistan’s ruling People Party upon his arrival at Benazir International airport in Islamabad on Tuesday.

Speaking to newsmen at the airport, Malik credited President Zardari for Dr. Chishtiโ€™s release. Asif Ali Zardari had talked to Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for the release of Dr. Chishti during his visit to India last month.

Chisti was serving a life sentence in connection with a 1992 murder case in an Indian jail.
