Adviser to prime minister on interior affairs, Rehman Malik on Monday expressed his grievances to Afghanistan over the Afghan militant attack on Pakistani security personnel in Upper Dir area on Sunday.
A cross border attack by Afghan militants in Upper Dir area resulted in the deaths of 10 security personnel whereas another 10 were missing.
Pakistan security forces killed 15 militants in retaliatory action.
The security forces’ team was patrolling on the Pak-Afghan border when it was attacked by the militants who crossed the border.
Pakistan insists that several top Pakistani Taliban leaders, including Fazalullah, Maulvi Faqir of Bajaur tribal region and Abdul Wali from Mohmand tribal agency, have established bases in Afghanistan and regularly launch attacks on Pakistani border posts from there.
Pakistani Taliban in a major cross-border attack in August last year had killed 25 security men in northern Chitral district.
Also on Friday, two Pakistani security men were killed and two others were injured when a mortar shell hit a border post in Mohmand Agency, official sources said. The sources said a rocket was fired by militants from across the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, which struck the post in Khwezai region.
