They possessed valid Afghan Citizen Cards and wanted to return to Afghanistan voluntarily. An undocumented Afghan family from Karachi also reported to the holding area and was sent home via Torkham. The Interior Ministry has exempted members of Afghanistan’s Ismaili community from arrest, as they are being considered for resettlement in Western countries. 27 illegal migrants, including children, women, and men, were also sent back to Afghanistan. Additionally, 123 “illegal” aliens, including men, women, and children, left the holding area in Khyber tribal district for Afghanistan. 137 undocumented Afghan refugees from various areas in Punjab were also repatriated via Torkham.
