13 Indian ISIS terrorists held in Afghanistan may soon be repatriated under extradition treaty: Report

Last week, 82 terrorists had turned themselves in and surrendered to the security forces in Achin district of Nangarhar province. They had 51 women and 96 children with them.

Kabul may soon be extraditing 13 Indian ISIS terrorists to India who were amongst more than 600 ISIS terrorists who had surrendered to the Afghan National Army in the last few weeks, says a report published in the Economic Times.

The decision to extradite Indian-origin ISIS terrorists came in the wake of the formalisation of the extradition treaty between the two countries last Sunday. According to the sources, the surrendered ISIS terrorists from India will be repatriated back after following due procedures.

Hundreds of ISIS terrorists have surrendered to the Afghan National Army following the offence launched by the American and Afghan forces. About 243 ISIS terrorists surrendered with around 400 family members on November 19 after a fierce onslaught against the terror group’s strongholds in Kunar and Nangarhar provinces in Afghanistan.

Last week, 82 terrorists had turned themselves in and surrendered to the security forces in Achin district of Nangarhar province. They had 51 women and 96 children with them.

The Governor of Nangarhar province, Shahmahmood Miakhel, had then claimed that about one-third of the surrendered ISIS terrorists belonged to India and Pakistan who will be first taken to Kabul for interrogation and subsequently sent back to their respective countries.

Since mid-October, the Armed forces of Afghanistan and the American forces have routinely bombarded the ISIS stronghold in the region, curtailing their food supplies and leaving them with the option of either starving to death or surrender to the forces.

The Indian intelligence agencies assert that a major chunk of the Indian ISIS terrorists is Keralites who were in Nangarhar and Kunar provinces. The intelligence agencies’ officials claim that they have been continuously monitoring their communications.

Agencies also believe that many of the missing Indians who were suspected of joining the ISIS have met with a grim fate. Others who have survived the carnage meted out by the US and Afghan forces and have realised that their cause stares an inevitable defeat are now eager to escape the strife-torn region.
