Iranian forces have handed over 3,500 Pakistanis to the province's Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
Balochistan FIA's Assistant Director Sultan Mohammad Afridi has told Express 24/7 that Iranian forces had arrested the illegal immigrants in Iran last year, during an operation against Jundullah. The immigrants, who hailed from Balochistan were handed over to the FIA in Taftan.
Afridi said that last year 8,500 Pakistanis were also arrested by Iran and handed over to the government. The assistant director said such incidents damage the image of Pakistan and FIA Balochistan is taking measures to curb such illegal immigration.
