Pakistan deports 160 Afghan nationals

Pakistani Khyber Agency political administration on Friday deported 160 Afghan nationals to Afghanistan via the Torkham border.

Officials said the deported Afghans were arrested in different cities of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on separate occasions and were lodged at various lockups of the province for staying in Pakistan without proper travelling documents.

All the arrested Afghans were handed over to Khyber Agency political administration by the Peshawar police on Friday who were later transported to the Torkham border under Khasadar and Levies escort.

At Torkham, they were handed over to Afghan border authorities after completion of necessary documentation. Dawn reported
