Iran fails to control flow of people at border, sends further 150 Pakistanis


Deputy Commissioner Chaghi has said that the Iranian authorities were requested not to release the pilgrims, but the Iranian authorities are constantly sending Pakistani pilgrims.

According to details, spokesman Balochistan government Liaquat Shahwani has confirmed the return of the pilgrims, he told the media that Pakistani pilgrims are coming daily and were not banned. The Iranian government was requested to keep the returners in quarantine for 14 days, but the pilgrims are being sent back without being kept in quarantine.

DC Chaghi Agha Sher Zaman said that on our request, the Iranian authorities replied that we are sending back the Pakistanis. The pilgrims are brought to Taftan Gate and left alone. We have also recorded protest to the Iranian authorities. The top officials have been informed about the situation. On Thursday, 150 pilgrims from Iran were transferred to Quarantina.

Meanwhile, the Balochistan government also said that it would have been better to send the visitors back after quarantine clearance from Iran, but without it, the Iranian government has started sending the Pakistanis to border with an exit stamp. Liaquat Shahwani said that Pakistanis were also lacking access to food on the Iranian border. The Balochistan government had no choice but to return the visitors.
