PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Pakistaninfo-icon has detained two more individuals involved in helping Afghan Talibaninfo-icon leader Mullahinfo-icon Akhtar Mansour get Pakistani identity documents.

The National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has been blamed for fraudulently ‘selling’ Pakistani citizenship to outsiders. The interior minister has ordered a re-verification exercise to remove illegal entries in the database.

A statement from the Ministry of Interior said Aziz Ahmad Achakzai, a Balochistan Levies Force official, was apprehended in Quetta for helping Wali Mohammad acquire a manual Pakistani ID card.

Riffat Iqbal, another NADRA official, was picked up in Karachi for tampering with records to secure the Pakistani citizenship of Wali Mohammad’s second wife and children. He had disappeared after the drone attack.

On Friday, NADRA Junior Executive Syed Afsar Hassan was taken into custody for allegedly tampering with family records to pass off foreigners as Pakistani citizens. He had been involved with a human trafficking racket as well.
