July 20, 2016

HANGU, 20 July: Bangash tribesmen on Wednesday hold a protest demonstration and observed complete shutter down and wheel jam strike here urging the local authorities to resolve their decades-long land dispute with Palosin Wazir tribesmen.

The protesters blocked the main road due to which traffic flow remained suspended between Kohat and Kurram agency.

The tribesmen were of the view that the Palosin Wazir tribesmen had illegally occupied 40,000 kanal land of Dursamand, Tall and Khweidad Khel tribesmen for the last 50 years. They said the dispute had claimed four lives so far from both the sides and feared that it could further aggravated if not resolved.

The protesting tribesmen alleged that the local authorities had not been helping them to vacate what they called the illegal occupation of their land due to which the dispute had been lingering on for decades.

They demanded of the authorities to resolve the issue at the earliest otherwise they threatened, they would extend and prolong their protest.

Later, commandant Tall Scouts, Col. Munir held negotiations with a six-member representative committee of the Bangash tribesmen and assured them to resolve their longstanding issue within five days.

After getting assurance from the military authorities, the protesters dispersed peacefully.
