BARA, 25 May: Tribesmen belonging to Sipah tribe of the Bara subdivision in Khyber Agency have complained their damaged houses were not being registered in the survey carried out in Bara.

“Survey teams come to our area, inspect our damaged houses but they do not register them. The government is not paying heed to our miseries,” said a tribesman while talking to TNN.

Another tribesman complained that his house was completely destroyed in the military operation but so far no survey team had visited the area.

When contacted, an official of the political administration said surveys in Shalobar and Akakhel tribes’ territories have been started to register tribesmen’s houses damaged due to militancy and the subsequent military operations in the area.

The official told TNN that after completion of surveys in Shalobar and Akakhel, the teams would be sent to Sipah tribe area to register the damaged houses.
