Illegal Afghans get one-week deadline to leave Jamrud
PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Afghan citizens without proper residency documents have been given a week’s deadline to vacate their houses in Jamrud tehsil of Khyber Agency, a local official said on Tuesday..
A source in the Jamrud political administration confided to Pajhwok Afghan News that a crackdown would be launched on the illegal Afghans after expiration of the deadline. The move is driven by the security situation.
Backed by tribal chieftains, administration officials made announcements through mosque loudspeakers,telling the Afghans to leave the area if they.
A day earlier, Assistant Political Agent Saiful Islam told journalists they had been ordered to take action against illegal Afghans if they did not return to their country voluntarily.
“We will do whatever we can to ensure no illegal foreigners stay in Jamrud after the deadline runs out,” the area administrator added. He urged elders to support the campaign against illegal Afghans.
