According to the border authorities in Spin Boldak, this includes five hundred and thirty-seven families, consisting of two thousand and thirty-six individuals, including six detainees who were forcibly expelled and returned to the country after their release from Pakistani prisons. The ministry clarified that this recent influx of returning migrants has been registered with the Migrants Directorate for assistance purposes, with the relevant information shared with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the World Food Organization, the International Organization for Migration, and the Norwegian Refugee Council.
