Pakistan has demanded the hand over ISIS Khurasan leader who was recently arrested by the Afghan intelligence forces.
“The Ambassador of Afghanistan to Pakistan was called to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and conveyed Pakistan’s views with regard to the arrest of ISIS-K leader, Aslam Farooqi, by the Afghan authorities on 5 April 2020,” Pakistan’s foreign ministry said in a statement.
The statement further added “It was emphasized that Pakistan had been expressing its concerns over the activities of this group, which were clearly detrimental to Pakistan. Pakistan’s position in this regard was being regularly shared with the Government of Afghanistan and others concerned.”
“It was underscored to the Ambassador that since Aslam Farooqi was involved in anti-Pakistan activities in Afghanistan, he should be handed-over to Pakistan for further investigations,” the statement added.
The National Directorate of Security (NDS) in a statement said last week that the Special Forces of the directorate conducted a complex operation and arrested Abdullah Orakizai alias Aslam Farooqi, the leader of ISIS Khurasan.
The statement further added that the NDS Special Forces also arrested 19 other top ISIS commanders during the raid including Qari Zahid and Saifullah alias Abu Talha Pakistani.
