Iran hands over 89 illegal immigrants to Pakistan

Tehran, Feb 25 : Iran announced on Monday the extradition of 89 Pakistanis to their country after entering the territory illegally.

Iranian border guards handed over the 89 migrants to their Pakistani counterpart across the border area Taftan of the town of Mirjaveh in Iran, QNA said in report.

The migrants were arrested in Iran for not having immigration documents, while some intended illegal infiltration into Turkey, and then to European countries.

Iran complains of the growing illegal immigration of Pakistanis, particularly across the country's southeastern border, which it says has created problems for both countries, and sometimes people have lost their lives. (UNI)
