The Afghanistan Embassy in Islamabad has said Pakistani police have detained more than a thousand Afghan migrants in the last two weeks, media reports said.

In a statement issued Tuesday, the embassy reported that some of these detainees lost their lives while in custody, and their bodies were discovered in hospitals and various other locations, reports Khaama Press.

The Taliban embassy emphasized that despite repeated promises from Pakistani authorities, the “arrest, harassment, and mistreatment” of Afghan refugees and migrants by Pakistani police continues, the news agency reported.

Regarding the killing of migrants, the embassy stated, “Unfortunately, in addition to harassment and mistreatment, unjustifiable killings have also occurred.

The Taliban embassy in Islamabad added that it had informed Pakistani authorities about this issue.

According to the embassy’s statement, Pakistani police are conducting raids on Afghan migrants’ homes day and night. The Taliban embassy also added that nearly 500 of the detained refugees have migration and travel documents.

Most of the Afghan migrants, according to the Taliban embassy, have been detained on the outskirts of Islamabad.
