CHAGAI: Iranian authorities on Wednesday handed over eighty-nine Pakistani immigrants to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) at Taftan border in Chagai district, Balochistan.
According to a private media outlet, the detainees were living in Iran without valid documents. The FIA officials after registering a case against them have started further investigation.
The deportation of the immigrants comes on the heels of Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa’s trip to Tehran and interactions with Iranian civilian and military leadership.
During his visit, Gen Bajwa met Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, and Defence Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami among other top leaders.
