TAFTAN: Iranian authorities deported 140 illegal Pakistani migrants via Rahdari Gate in Taftan, a border town in Chagai district, and handed over them to Levies Force on Sunday.

A Levies Force officer told Dawn the migrants were later handed over to Federal Investigation Agency for further interrogation. Most migrants hailing from different parts of country tried to reach Europe via Iran, he said.

He said the detainees included 88 people from Punjab, 24 from Sindh, 21 from KP, four from Balochistan and three from Azad Jammu and Kashmir.

Besides, 22 illegal migrants, who were also deported by Iran, were sent back as they did not have any official document relating to their citizenship.
