Pakistan's Foreign Ministry on Thursday issued a statement saying the office had summoned the Afghan envoy in Islamabad, Atif Mashal, and insisted that the captured Daesh leader Aslam Farooqi, who was arrested in Afghanistan on April 4, be handed-over to Pakistan for questioning.
The statement read:
"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."
According to Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security (NDS), Abdullah Orakzai, who is known as Aslam Farooqi, the leader of the Khorasan branch of Daesh terrorist group, and his 19 associates, including Qari Zahid and Saifullah known as Abu Talaha, were arrested during an operation by the special units of the National Directorate of Security. The news broke on April 4.
