Over 2,900 Afghan migrants expelled from Pakistan in last 24 hours

Pakistani authorities confirmed on Sunday the expulsion of 2,951 undocumented Afghan migrants within the past 24 hours, marking the 19th consecutive day of ongoing deportations of undocumented immigrants.

According to Pakistani authorities, among the 2,959 migrants expelled were 1,092 men, 668 women, and 1,199 children.

Pakistani media reports indicate that a total of 235,821 undocumented Afghan migrants have been repatriated to Afghanistan thus far.

Contrastingly, figures from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reveal a higher count, stating that nearly 300,000 migrants have been sent back to Afghanistan in the past two weeks alone.

The deportation process sees thousands of Afghans returned to Afghanistan daily through the Chaman and Torkham border crossings, reflecting the scale and persistence of the mass repatriation efforts.
