GHALANAI, May 18: The political administration of Mohmand tribal agency bordering Afghanistan has imposed curfew in all parts of the district  Mohmand except Prang Ghar tehsil due to security reasons, said a press release issued  here on Wednesday.

In absence of local media telecommunication infrastructure, the officials of the administration made  announcements through loudspeakers in various Mosques to apprise the local population of the curfew which will be in place from tonight 8:30 PM  till morning 4:30 AM in the agency.

The main Peshawar Bajaur road will also be close for all sorts of traffic in the tribal region, the press release said

Law enforcement agencies have already banned motor cycle riding in the entire  agency owing to some security threats.

It is pertinent to mention here that security has been beefed up in the district after two mortar-shells and a missile fired from unknown location by some miscreants landed at  Government College of Management Sciences Ghalanai  near the agency headquarters Ghalanai late on Tuesday night. However, no casualty was reported as only security guards were present in the college.

Meanwhile some unknown armed men hurled a hand grenade at the house of one Asad Khan, a security guard of Mohmand Press Club,  in Shani Khel area of Haleemzai tehsil last night at about 2:00 am. However Asad Khan and his family remained safe in the attack.
