BARA, 14 September: The elders of Alam Goodar, Khyber Agency have expressed concern over ongoing construction work on disputed lands in the area which may cause enmities among different tribes.

The tribal elders while addressing a press conference in Peshawar on Wednesday said the political administration had banned any construction work on the lands from Sarma Wela to Nala Khwar, but some influential people have started construction work on these disputed lands. They said the administration has also arrested seven tribesmen over resisting construction work.

The elders called upon the administration to ensure demarcation of these disputed lands under the 1992 map to avoid any untoward situation in future.

“The issue may lead to enmities between different tribes which is a matter of grave concern for us. We demand the administration to come forward and give everyone his due share in this land. No favours should be done in distribution of the land,” Malik Sher Badshah told TNN.
