ASADABAD (PANinfo-icon): Pakistani troops have established a checkpoint 300 metres inside Afghan territory in the Narai district of eastern Kunar province, an official claimed on Saturday.

A three-member delegation, led by provincial police chief, Brig. Gen. Abdul Habib Syedkheli, recently visited the district for investigations that confirmed the checkpoint’s construction on this side of the Durand Lineinfo-icon.

The border post is located in Batash area, according to Kunar Governor Syed Fazlullah Wahidi, who told Pajhwok Afghan News: “It is an act of encroachment on Afghan territory.

“I have ordered security personnel to visit the area and expel Pakistani soldiers from our soil,” the governor said, days after a border clash in the Goshta district of neighbouring Nangarhar province.
