The Pak-Afghan border at Torkham has been opened to allow Pakistanis stranded in Afghanistan to return. The decision was taken on the orders of the Pakistani Interior Ministry, the District Police Officer (DPO) said on Saturday.
The DPO said the Pakistanis returning from Afghanistan are being permitted entrance only after all relevant SOPs are followed.
“Entrants are transferred to quarantine centres for precautionary measures,” he stated.
Last month, Pakistan had opened its Torkham and Chaman border crossings for four days to allow Afghan nationals in the country to return home.
