Srinagar: Despite a blanket ban on the entry of foreign tourists into Kashmir, four foreigners managed to slip out of Srinagar airport after landing here.

Sources said four foreign tourists, a couple from Italy, an American and a Russian arrived here on Wednesday by air from Delhi.

"They managed to slip out of the airport after landing here and are now staying at a houseboat on the Dal Lake in Srinagar," sources told IANS.

Meanwhile, authorities are now saying that these tourists would be sent back on Thursday and there is no risk because of their arrival since they would have been screened while they travelled to other parts of the country.
