Iranian authorities handed over 39 illegal immigrants to Levies Force at Pak-Iran border Taftan on Sunday. Levies sources said the illegal Pakistani immigrants were trying to reach European countries via Iran and Turkey.

Iranian forces had arrested the 39 illegal immigrants and handed them over to Levies at Taftan.

The illegal immigrants shifted to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) office in Quetta for completion of legal proceedings.

Thousands of illegal immigrants make abortive attempts to reach Europe 

Every year, thousands of illegal immigrants make abortive attempts to reach Greece and other European countries for getting jobs. They use unfrequented routes at the Pak-Iran border and sneak into Iran with the support of human traffickers.

Very few of these illegal immigrants reach European countries. However, most of them are caught in Iran and Turkey. Growing unemployment and poverty force a large number of youngsters to seek jobs in European countries. Youngsters from Balochistan province are also trying to sneak into Iran to reach European countries.

Pakistan had also established an inter-agency task force comprising frontier corps, FIA, levies, and police to stop human smuggling.
