Deputy Chief of Mission at Chinese Embassy in Pakistan, Lijian Zhao, responding to a viral video showing grieving mother appealing for help for her son who has reportedly been in custody for the last 10 months in China, has said that the passport number shared by the lady is invalid.

Taking notice of the matter, Zhao added that he checked and there's no visa information on the given passport number.

"I checked. This is not a valid passport number. There’s no visa information on this passport number. The Pakistan passport usually starts with two English letters, such as AB6666666. Can you please check again with the mom?" reads Zhao tweet.

The video that had been doing the rounds on the internet lately shows a woman named Rashida Perveen, hailing from Taxila, crying while holding a portrait of his son.

She goes on to claim that his son Waqas Ali has been taken as captive by the Chinese government.

Waqas had been reportedly working in China for the past 14 months.
