Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik has demanded Afghanistan to arrest and hand over Pakistani Taliban leader Mullah Fazlullah who is reportedly based in Kunar province.

Malik said the militants are launching attacks on Pakistani villages and security posts along the Pak-Afghan border in Bajour, Dir and Chitral areas from inside Afghanistan, reports The Dawn.

Malik said the Afghan government should cooperate in sealing the Pak-Afghan border as it is necessary to control terrorism.

Vowing to continue the government's efforts against terrorism, he said that all the young men, who have been engaged by the militants, would be given employment opportunities if they end their links with them. (ANI)
