Seven Pakistanis deported from Turkey

In January, Turkey deported seven Pakistanis for illegally trying to enter the country. They were sent back on flight TK-710 and the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) received them at the New Islamabad International Airport.

Out of the seven men, the FIA cleared five and arrested two, namely Gujranwala’s Manawar Hussain and Asad Abbas.

Last year, the Anti-Human Trafficking Cell arrested eight passengers who were deported by Turkey.
