LANDI KOTAL: Pakistan handed over four suspected members of the militant Islamic State (IS) group’s Afghanistan chapter to Kabul as ‘a gesture of goodwill’ on Tuesday.

The four were paraded before journalists at the Michni checkpoint before being handed over to Afghan officials at the Torkham border crossing.

Landi Kotal Assistant Political Agent Niaz Mohammad told reporters that Javed Khan, Safiullah, Talmeen Khan and Niamatullah, all hailing from Nangarhar province of Afghanistan, had been arrested by intelligence agencies in Peshawar after they received information about the militants’ presence in the city.

He said that the four suspects had sneaked into Pakistan for medical treatment after they were injured during a fight with security forces in Afghanistan.
