Five hundred and twenty-four Afghans arrived in Spin Boldak district of Kandahar at around 10 pm on Sunday night after being freed from Pakistani prisons.

Officials in Kandahar met them, provided the necessary facilities for them and said they will return to their homes Monday morning.

The returnees were provided with health, food and transportation facilities upon their arrival in their country.

“524 Afghans, including 54 women and 97 children, were released from the prisons of Karachi, and according to the instructions of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Afghanistan, all expenses for transportation, food and clothing of the prisoners were paid by the embassy and consulate, and they will be sent to their homes,” said officials.

According to the governor’s media office, Afghans who have been released from Pakistani prisons have “many painful stories in their hearts” and have spoken out about the abuses committed by Pakistani officials.

At the same time, the Afghans are grateful to the leaders of the Islamic Emirate, who worked to secure their release, officials said.

The returnees were provided with health, food and transportation facilities upon their arrival in their country.

This comes after the Pakistani government stated that Afghans without valid visas need to leave the neighboring country by the end of 2022.—Ariana news
