Forty-two people were deported from Greece for attempting to enter illegally. Upon their arrival at Benazir Bhutto International Airport (BBIA) on Saturday, they were taken into custody by Federal Investigation Agency's Anti-Human Trafficking Circle (AHTC) officials. AHTC Gujranwala officials also arrested some deportees and shifted them to Gujranwala jails for further investigations. According to officials, a majority of the deported belonged to Gujrat who were trying to slip into Greece when they were caught by coast guards at a shipping port and detained for illegal entry. "They used the Iran-Turkey route and were travelling with the help of a human trafficker," said FIA immigration shift in-charge Khubaibullah Baloch. … An FIA official added that the deported were mostly from rural areas, uneducated and manipulated by traffickers.
