KHUZDAR: Security forces arrested 62 Afghan nationals, including women and children, on Tuesday.
They were travelling from Quetta to Karachi without legal documents.
“Families of Afghan refugees aboard a passenger coach travelling from Quetta to Karachi were taken into custody in Khuzdar as they failed to prove their legal status,” police officer Abdul Qadir Sheikh told Dawn.
Sources said that security personnel intercepted the coach after receiving information about the illegal travel.
The detained people were taken to a police station and a case was registered against them under the Foreigners Act.
