Afghans given 6 days to leave Mohmand tribal region

Jul 05, 2017 - 11:19

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Undocumented Afghan refugees living in Mohmand Agency have been given a week to leave the tribal region, bordering eastern Kunar province,

The political administration has issued notices to all unregistered Afghan refugees to leave the area within six days, a leading Pakistani newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Stringent action would be taken against the Afghans failing to leave the area in the stipulated time, Dawn quoted an unnamed administration official as saying.

Local tribesmen have also been warned against renting out houses to Afghan refugees. “All Afghan refugees residing illegally in Mohmand Agency should return to Afghanistan within a week or face action.”

Meanwhile, Afghan shopkeepers and traders were directed through mosque loudspeakers to sell their outlets and return to their homeland.
