The two men were in a stationery shop at a market when they were picked up by the NDS sleuths and taken to one of their detention centres along with the embassy's official vehicle, a source said.

The embassy informed the Afghan foreign ministry and sought the release of the staffers.

Pakistan has also urged Afghanistan to loo into the matter seriously and ensure the security and safety of the two detained personnel.

In a statement issued by Pakistan's Foreign Affairs, Islamabad said the diplomats had been arrested by security agencies and that Afghan Charge d Affaires Abdul Nasir Yousafi was summoned in protest over the arrests.

After three hours of detention, Mr Khanzada and Mr Shah were finally released.

And an Afghan military delegation last week participated in a trilateral meeting, also involving Pakistan and the USA, held in Rawalpindi to discuss issues related to security and border management.

Sources said that the meeting which continued just half an hour, ended with no result as Afghan military officials insisted that Pakistani forces leave both border villages Killi Luqman and Killi Jahangir claiming that both the villages belonged to Afghanistan.
