ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan has on Friday shut down the Torkham and Chaman border crossings with Afghanistan for all sorts of traffic for an indefinite period of time following the horrific suicide blast on the shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan.

The border points have been closed to stop entry of terrorists from Afghanistan.

Several banned terrorist organizations, including Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and Jamaat-ul-Ahrar are based in Afghanistan, and they have been carrying activities in Pakistan from there.

Security forces have increased patrolling, surveillance and checking on check posts along the Pak-Afghan border.
