TEHRAN - The Iranian Interior Ministry rejected Jeish al-Adl terrorist group's recent claim that it has executed one of the five Iranian border guards it abducted along Iran-Pakistan border several months ago.

"We don't confirm this report; were it true, we would have been informed," Interior Ministry spokesman Hossein Ali Amiri was quoted as stating by FARS news agency on Monday.

He said that the five border guards are kept in Pakistan at present and are safe and sound.

Amiri made the remarks after Jeish al-Adl claimed on its tweeter page that it has killed Jamshid Danayeefar, one of the kidnapped border guards.

Five Iranian border guards were abducted in Jakigour region of Iran's Sistan and Balochistan province on February 6 and reportedly taken to Pakistan.

The so-called Jeish al-Adl terrorist group claimed responsibility for their abduction.
