The Frontier Corps arrested an Indian national near the Chaman border on Friday. An official told The Express Tribune that security forces had detained a suspect near Chaman border, who had illegally entered Pakistani territory from Afghanistan. “He did not have valid traveling documents and has been taken into custody for interrogation,” sources revealed. It was confirmed later on that the man belonged to India.

Officials of the FIA asserted that 8-10,000 people cross the Pak-Afghan border daily from Chaman without proper documents, making it difficult to track their movement.

A judicial tribunal, while expressing serious concern over the deteriorating law and order situation, recommended installing CCTV cameras at all entry points of Quetta as well as along the Chaman border.

However, so far no steps have been taken to enforce strict monitoring of cross-border movement by the security agencies.
