The Anti-Human Trafficking Circle of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has registered an FIR against officials of the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) who issued a Pakistani national identity card to a frontman of Mullah Akhtar Mansoor, former chief of the Afghan Taliban. 

The case has been registered on the complaint of FIA Assistant Director Rehmatullah Domki. 

Initial investigations have found that former Afghan Taliban chief’s frontman Ammar Yasir, son of Muhammad Yasir, entered Pakistan illegally and got himself issued the national identity card of Pakistan from a NADRA office in Karachi using forged documents. After entering Pakistan illegally, he moved to Karachi and started living in Sindh-Baloch Society in Gulistan-e-Johar, Karachi.

In the past, a case was registered in Nushki against officials of NADRA in Chaman for issuing Mullah Akhtar Mansoor the national identity card of Pakistan.
