According to the Afghanistan Embassy in Islamabad, another 60 Afghan prisoners were released from the Sindh Central Jail of Pakistan.

The General Consulate of Afghanistan in Karachi, Sindh province, said that another 60 prisoners were released due to the efforts of Afghan officials of the Embassy.

Earlier, the General Consulate of Afghanistan said that 66 prisoners, including eight children, were released from Karachi jails.

According to the statement, the inmates were transported to Afghanistan via Chaman at the expense of the government in accordance with directives from the Afghan Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Meanwhile, around 2,342 Afghan prisoners were released from several Pakistani prisons and have returned to the country due to the efforts of Afghanistan’s Foreign Ministry.

Most Afghan nationals immigrate to the neighbouring country due to medical treatment, work and fleeing from prosecution and security threats.

Some Afghan refugees do not have valid travel documents, particularly those who travel for medical treatment or flee from prosecution by the de facto regime. Therefore, the Pakistani officials arrest them and put them in jail.

Over three million Afghan refugees who are officially registered have lived in Pakistan for many years.
