KABUL: Afghanistan’s government says it will not hand over a captured Islamic State (IS) militant leader to Pakistan because there is no formal extradition treaty between Kabul and Islamabad.

The Afghan government announced its position on April 10, a day after Pakistan called for Afghanistan to hand over Aslam Farooqi — the captured leader of an IS affiliate in Afghanistan.

Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs says the request had been made during a meeting with Afghanistan’s ambassador to Pakistan on April 9.
