IBNS: Pakistan has repatriated 435,152 illegal Afghans to Afghanistan, media reports said on Tuesday.
The apex committee of the National Action Plan (NAP) in a meeting on October 3, chaired by Caretaker PM Anwaarul Haq Kakar gave a deadline to all foreign nationals living illegally in the country until October 31 to leave voluntarily or face deportation, reported ARY News.
Caretaker Interior Minister Sarfraz Ahmed Bugti all claims of ‘manhandling’ illegal immigrants during the repatriation process.
“Prime Minister [Anwaarul Haq Kakar] has given very clear instructions that there should be no manhandling of illegal immigrants during the repatriation process,” the interior minister said while speaking on the Senate floor as quoted by ARY News.
“No Afghan refugee having legal documents has been even touched,” he added.
