ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Security Agencies have gone hard on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border in the wake of rising terrorism.

Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan at Chaman remains closed on the third day today, authorities issued shoot-at-sight orders for those found trying to cross over.

The Friendship Gate was closed on Friday as part of tightening security in the wake of the suicide attack on the shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan town of Sindh in which nearly 90 people lost their lives and over 340 others suffered injuries.

As a result, traffic and transit trade between Pakistan and Afghanistan also remained suspended.

“Shooting order has been issued to the security forces for those…found trying to enter…Pakistan illegally from any area of the border,” security officials said.
