An Indian man released after six years in prison in Pakistan has warned others against repeating his mistake – falling in love on Facebook.

Hamid Nehal Ansari illegally entered Pakistan via Afghanistan in 2012 to meet a woman whom he had fallen in love with on the site.

But when he arrived at her house police were waiting and immediately arrested him.

The 33-year-old was later jailed for spying and forging documents.

"Do not be emotional about strangers and don't fall in love on social media including Facebook," Mr Ansari told AFP three days after being released and deported to India.

A video shared by India's ministry of external affairs shows Mr Ansari meeting his mother and the minister Sushma Swaraj.

Local media translated his mother's comments to Ms Swaraj as: "My India is great, my madam is great. Madam did everything."

Images of Mr Ansari arriving back in India showed him hugging his bother and touching his head to the ground after crossing the border.

"Getting deported was the happiest moment of my life," Mr Ansari told journalists.

He said he intends to "start a business, get married and work on building back my life. No more social for me," he added.
