The surrenders happened in the eastern province of Nangarhar, where the Afghan national security forces have launched a ferocious operation against the ISIS.

Now Afghanistan could possibly extradite 13 Indian origin Islamic State terrorists after India and Afghanistan signed bilateral extradition treaty recently.

Since 2016, about a dozen men from Kerala travelled to Afghanistan to join the ISIS. Some of them had converted to Islam and several were accompanied by their families.

In the past two weeks, 243 ISIS fighters and approximately 400 of their family members have surrendered, according to Afghanistan’s Nangarhar provincial governor Shah Mahmood Miakhel. Last Thursday, 82 ISIS fighters surrendered to security forces in Achin district of Nangarhar. They were accompanied by 51 women and 96 children.
