JALALABAD: A total of 534 Afghan families have returned from Pakistan through the Torkham ground port of the country in the past one day, the Director of Nangarhar Refugees and Repatriation Department said in a statement the other day. “The families, including 3,000 individuals, have returned from the neighboring country of Pakistan in the past one day,” the statement said, adding they have also been introduced to the provincial International Organization for Migration Office for receiving necessary assistance. This comes after the Pakistani government has ordered all undocumented immigrants, including 1.7 million Afghans, to leave the country by November 1, or face mass deportations. After the decision, many Af ghan families have voluntarily or forcibly returned to their homeland via Torkham and Chaman crossings ports of the country in the past weeks. The Kabul Time
