35 illegal Pakistanis deported from Nangarhar

35 illegal Pakistanis deported from Nangarhar

JALALABAD (PAN): Police forcibly deported at least 35 Pakistanis through the Torkham border crossing because they stayed illegally in the eastern province of Nangarhar, officials said on Monday.

The quick reaction police force seized the Pakistanis having no legal travelling documents in different parts of Jalalabad, the provincial capital, on Sunday and handed them over to border police for deportation to their home country, police spokesman Maj. Hazrat Hussain Mashriqiwal said.

He told Pajhwok Afghan News the move was part of efforts to ensure better security in the city. He said all police headquarters in districts had been directed to arrest foreigners staying illegally and interrogate them before their deportation.

“Border police thoroughly check documents of foreigners entering Nangarhar through the Torkham border crossing, but the individuals who were deported seemed to have entered trough smuggling routes,” the 1st border police zone commander, Col. Mohammad Ayub Husainkhel, said.
