Frontier Corps (FC) spokesman said that the security force carried out raids in different parts of the provincial capital and took the Afghan nationals into custody.
He added that the arrested persons were residing in the country without proper documents. They have been handed over to Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) for deportation.
A seminary by the name of Abdullah bin Zubair was also sealed by the authorities.
It should be noted that more than 1000 illegal Afghan nationals have been deported from the country.
The provincial authorities have stepped up crackdowns against Afghans illegally staying in Balochistan for the past two years. A large number of people have been apprehended during the drive.
