Pakistan-Afghanistan border management new rules implemented
Pakistan and Afghanistan border Management new engagement terms and conditions have been implemented at the Torkham Border with the start of the new year.
Authorities had made announcements through loudspeakers and displayed banners at prominent places at the border to apprise Pakistani nationals about the new restrictions prior to expiry of the deadline.
Authorities said that the new restrictions were imposed after arrest of a number of suspected Afghans with fake Pakistani Computerised National Identity Cards (CNICs).
Earlier, authorities had permitted Pakistani nationals to use their CNICs for cross-border movement but ended the relaxation after receiving information about preparation of fake CNICs in Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.
